Configuring Symantec Data Loss Prevention Pack for IT Analytics 7.5 SP1 and IT Analytics Server

IT Analytics

After you install Symantec Data Loss Prevention Pack, you must configure the IT Analytics Server to meet the needs of your environment. Before you can successfully configure it, specific software prerequisites and considerations must be met.

See System requirements and supported platforms

To configure IT Analytics Server

  1. In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click Notification Server > IT Analytics Settings.

  2. In the left pane, expand IT Analytics Settings, and then click Configuration.

  3. In the right pane, under Analysis Server, in the Analysis Server Name box, type the host name of the Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services.

    If you did not install SQL Server as the default instance, use the following format for the host name: servername\instancename.

    Symantec recommends that you type the host name of the server on which Analysis Services reside. If you use localhost as a host name, you restrict the access from the Symantec Management Console to the computer where Analysis Services resides.

    Note that this connection uses the Symantec Management Platform application ID credentials.

  4. Click Verify Connection, and confirm that the Analysis Server name has been verified and saved.

  5. Next to Analysis Server Database, create, or select an Analysis Server Database as follows:

    For a new standard configuration, create a new Analysis Server database.

    • Click Create new database.

    • In the Create new database box, use the default IT Analytics name.

    Select an existing Analysis Server database.

    Warning: If you select an existing database, the existing data sources are overwritten with the current Symantec Management Platform database settings.

    • Click Use existing database.

    • In the Use existing database drop-down list, click an Analysis Server database.

  6. Click Save Database Settings.

  7. Under Reporting Server, in the Reporting Server Virtual Directory URL box, type the full URL of the Reporting Services ReportServer virtual directory.

    If you did not install SQL Server as the default instance, use the following format for the virtual directory:

    http://servername/ReportServer$InstanceName/ for SQL Server 2005

    or

    http://servername/ReportServer_InstanceName/ for SQL Server 2008.

    Symantec recommends that you type the host name of the server on which Reporting Services reside. If you use localhost as a host name, you restrict the access from the Symantec Management Console to the computer where Reporting Services reside.

  8. Click Verify Connection and confirm that the Reporting Server name has been verified and saved.

  9. Next to Report Folder Name, create, or select a report folder as follows:

    For a new standard configuration, create a new IT Analytics report folder.

    • Click Create new report folder.

    • In the Create new report folder box, use the default IT Analytics report folder name.

    Select an existing folder to use for your IT Analytics report folder.

    Warning: If you select an existing folder, the existing data sources are overwritten with the current Analysis Server Database settings.

    • Click Use existing report folder.

    • In the Use existing report folder drop-down list, click a folder.

  10. Click Save Folder Settings.

  11. Next to Authentication Type, click the Edit symbol (pencil), and then select one of the following options for accessing Reporting Services:

    • Stored Credentials

      Explicitly defines the user credentials. It also automatically manages authentication across all application tiers because access to Reporting Services is always authenticated with the same rights for all users. However, Stored Credentials limits the granular control that you have over the information within the reports to which users have access.

  12. (Optional) If you selected Stored Credentials, type the user name and password.

  13. Click Save Security Settings and confirm that the Report Folder name is verified and saved.

  14. (Optional) Users who leverage IT Analytics reports hosted by SQL Server Reporting Services may want to display the reports in different languages. Due to the nature of the filter pane in SQL Server Reporting Services, textual labels for report parameters cannot be localized natively to display the desired language, unlike the body of the report itself.

    To provide language support for parameter labels, expand Optional Configuration. Click the Edit symbol (pencil), and then, next to Localize Report Parameters, click Yes. Click Save Reports Parameters Settings and confirm that the setting has been saved.

    Note that if you enable the Localize Report Parameters option and use Windows Integrated Authentication to connect from SQL Server Reporting Services to SQL Server Analysis Services, configuration of Kerberos may be required.

    For more information on configuring Kerberos, See Configuring Kerberos on the Symantec Management Platform and SQL Server Analysis Services and Reporting Services servers

  15. After you configure IT Analytics Server, you need to install cubes and reports. See the topics "Adding cubes" and "Adding reports".
