IT Analytics Symantec Endpoint Protection Content Pack provides the configuration information and the user functionality that is hosted inside Symantec Management Platform. It supports all database versions that Symantec Management Platform supports.
You can access the IT Analytics Symantec Endpoint Protection Content Pack -specific configuration information and the user functionality through the Symantec Management Console. The relational data that the CMDB hosts acts as the source for the cubes that are installed in SQL Analysis Services.
During the configuration of the Analysis Server section of the Connections page in the IT Analytics Settings folder, the data source gets created. The data source is created in the specified SQL Server Analysis Services Database that inherits the configured settings for the host Symantec Management Platform database. The data source also connects from Analysis Services to the database engine at the time of cube processing.
The SQL Server Database Engine that IT Analytics Symantec Endpoint Protection Content Pack stores the Server configuration settings, events, and cube processing settings. IT Analytics Symantec Endpoint Protection Content Pack has no other interactions with the SQL Server Database Engine.
Specific configurations within Symantec Management Platform might cause the data sources in Analysis Services to fail to connect to the relational database engine. In case this situation happens, it is important that you understand how and when the data sources in Analysis Services are created. You should also know how to reconfigure the data sources if a connection fails.
When you click Save Database Setting for the Analysis Server database box, the current connection settings for CMDB are used. This situation happens while you configure the Analysis Server section of the Connection Settings. The connection settings are used to either create new data sources in the Analysis Server database (if they do not already exist). They can also overwrite the existing settings. To repair the data sources that fail to connect, click the edit symbol for the Analysis Server database box. Then, click Save Database Settings without altering the configuration. This action sets the data sources to the current values. This step is necessary whenever the database settings for Symantec Management Platform are altered.
If you need to make advanced configuration changes to the data sources, you can directly manipulate the data sources by using SQL Server Management Studio. For example, you might want to change the host name or its credentials. The configuration changes persist as long as the Analysis Server database is not reconfigured using the instructions in this section. This action might be necessary when Notification Server is configured to connect to the CMDB using localhost. It also might be necessary when the Analysis Server database is not on the same host as Notification Server and the database engine.
