Dispatcher working, website not
« on: 16 Apr 2018 05:41:15 am »
Cognos 11.0.10 installation with SSO on Windows 2016. I used the install script for IIS configuration and manually checked every single step. I compared the Cognos configuration to the old C10.2.2 and use the same values but changed them to the new server names. My installation is distributed.

I did think of trust delegation of the domain controller, trusted sites in IE.

Logon to the dispatcher URL works and even the localhost/alias works with no logon necessary. However, Using the servername or the fully qualified server name of the gateway I get a blank page. If I use the URL that redirects to the Gateway I am promped for username and password but it does not accept any.

In Firefox I get prompted with every address I use and when I login I get to the Cognos Logon where after entering the credentials it loads forever.

Well, I guess the trust delegation was not done properly by the Windows admin so when I disabled Kerberos and entered in IIS for the virtual Cognos website the Windows Authentication and changed the sequence by moving NTLM to the top it worked.

Never trust you customer ::)
