After installing the web part for PerformacePoint Monitoring Dashboard Viewer in Sharepoint, I got the following error:

Parser Error Message: Could not load file or assembly ‘System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35’ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

This error kept throwing me off and I could not understand the reason. Finally, I figured out that I needed to download and install the ASP .Net 2.0 AJAX Extensions, Microsoft says you dont need it if you have ASP .Net 3.5 installed, but it turns out otherwise !

Did that and viola – back in business again…


Today, I got to experience things first hand with the installation of the following pieces of software.

Box1 – SQL Server 2005 SP3 (RDBMS, SSAS, SSRS, SSIS) installed and configured
Box2 – PerformancePoint Monitoring Server, ProClarity installed and configured
Box3 – MS Office 2007 Enterprise and MOSS 2007 Enterprise installed, configuration pending

Some interesting things of note:
1. ProClarity tries to connect using SQL authentication, and does not like to have a password that begins with ‘;’ – I almost lost it when it would not connect to the SQL Server, though I could see the connection coming to the back end and getting thrown in the error logs. Finally, I gave it a not-so-cryptic password and boom – it worked like a charm.

Next tasks:

  • Configure MOSS
  • Setup Excel Services
  • Setup Kerberos Authentication
  • Deploy Dashboard on MOSS
  • Setup accounts and permissions and trusts

This is the place I will come to gather my thoughts and keep a record of all that I will go through on my journey to becoming a BI guru, mainly dealing with the Microsoft suite of products geared towards Business Intelligence.

Microsoft Office 2007, including MOSS, more commonly known as the Sharepoint Server.
Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008 – mainly Enterprise Edition, though I have the standard edition running on my laptop.
Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Server, to work on creating cubes and other fun stuff with the dimensional data models.
Microsoft PerformancePoint Server 2007, for dashboard design and deployment, integration into Sharepoint, using webparts.
Microsoft ProClarity Analytics 6.3, for dashboards and intricate layouts.
