I referenced a great post listed below for windows AD and SSO with Business objects 4.0
i have completed this till step 8 , where i can see the authentication tab visible on BI launch pad but i am unable to log in as a AD user.
although the ticket at the end of step 7 has been successfully created but what i am not sure about is if i need to run the cmd prompt as a AD service account user or the admin user that i logged into the business objects vm server as?
Please let me know if that is irrelevant and if there is anything else that needs to be tested. I have followed all the other steps and have the service account AD user as part of the Admin group on the server and also act as part of operating system in the local security policy.
