Adding Essbase Servers to Enterprise View

Enterprise View is a graphical tree view of the Essbase environment, including Essbase Administration Servers and Essbase Servers. You can populate Enterprise View with a specific set of Essbase Servers. Each Administration Services user can populate Enterprise View with a unique set of Essbase Servers; the mappings to the servers are stored as part of the Essbase Administration Server user properties.

Each time you connect to Administration Services, you are automatically connected to each Essbase Server you chose to display in Enterprise View, if the server is running. When you add an Essbase Server after you open Administration Services Console, you are connected to the server automatically. To operate on an Essbase Server that you have added to Enterprise View, the server must be running.

You can also remove Essbase Servers from Enterprise View.

  To add an Essbase Server to Enterprise View:

  1. From Enterprise View, select the Essbase Servers node.

  2. Right-click and select Add Essbase Server from the shortcut menu.

    The Add Essbase Server dialog box is displayed.

  3. Enter the name of the Essbase Server, including cluster name if necessary, that you want to add to your view.


    If the Agent port on Essbase Server is different from the default port, you should also enter the port number, in this format: ServerMachineName:Port# (for example, jdoe2:4378)

  4. If you are using native Essbase authentication:

    1. Enter the user name for the Essbase Server.

    2. Enter and confirm the password for the user.

  5. If you are using external authentication:

    1. Select Use Single Sign On.

    2. Enter the user's current login name.

  6. Optional: If you are using SSL encryption, select Use SSL.

  7. Click OK.

    The Essbase Server that you added is displayed in Enterprise View.
