    Hi,

    NTLM is a very old authentication method and we do not recommend it. Its based on Windows NT. We recommend the use of the Kerberos authentication with BI4. You can also use SSO with this authentication.

    The official Configration steps you can find in the BI4 Admin Guide. But if you search the Forum you will find informations about some White Papers for this configuration which are even more helpful.

    Regards

    -Seb.

    Hi,

    For BI 4.0 you will only find Java Web application servers. Using NTLM is not an option. It only works for client tools and .NET (IIS).

    Hi Kir,

    there's virtually no reason to use NTLM. Kerberos is also a Microsoft authentication protocol, and performs all the same functions, but far more secure and flexible. I encourage you to take a look at this link, it gives great reasons why to switch from NTLM -> Kerberos.

    Kerberos performs all the same functions, including multi-domain auth.
