    Below is a thread that can provide you assistance with this issue:




    Also as of V1 deploying to a separate web application isn't supported but there is some possible workarounds to accomplish this, please see this blog posting as well:

    Hi Aseem,


    Basically I followed this article: http://technet2.microsoft.com/Office/en-us/library/0d2efc06-afb4-40fe-9ac9-f973ac3d985f1033.mspx#section1. Just to give you better idea of my current intranet / extranet type of deployment of MOSS.


    So based on the above article link, Currently my working deployment is using a 2 X web applications:-


    http://portal.xyz.co.za:81 - Intranet / Internal - Defualt Zone

    http://mossedge.xyz.co.za:81 - Extended Web App of http://portal.xyz.co.za:81 - Intenet Zone

    https://ontime.xyz.co.za - No web application just an Alternative Access Entry for Reverse Proxy.


    Would I need to deploy it to http://mossedge.xyz.co.za:81 as well using the stsadm commands described in http://blogs.msdn.com/performancepoint/archive/2007/11/12/how-do-i-deploy-the-monitoring-web-part-on-a-separate-sharepoint-web-application-on-the-same-sharepoint-web-server.aspx ?

  • My web.config file for http://mossedge.xyz.co.za:81 contains the below code just like http://portal.xyz.co.za:81 does.  So it is a safe control.  I am not getting any errors about the controls specifically.  Just get "Unexepected Error" on the Moss error page.

    Code Block

    <SafeControl Assembly="Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.WebParts, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" Namespace="Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.WebParts" TypeName="*" Safe="True" />

    When I get this error in MOSS.  The below error/s are logged in the application event log on the server:-


    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: PerformancePoint Monitoring Server
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 100
    Date:  1/8/2008
    Time:  11:33:25 PM
    User:  N/A
    A connection string is missing from the configuration file. Add Bpm.ConnectionString to the web.config file.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    Could it be <add key="Bpm.MonitoringConnectionString" value="Data Source=DEVPORTAL;Initial Catalog=PPSMonitoring;Integrated Security=True" /> in the web.config file?

  • Hi,

    I am having an issue something related to this thread. We have a SharePoint farm and PerformancePoint Server installed on one of the SharePoint server and integrated with SharePoint farm. I can build the dashboard elements in dashboard designer and published it to a SharePoint web application (http://intranet) and I had extended this web application and created a forms based authenticated web application which SSL certified for extranal users (https://extranet). 

    By using the above url in this thread, I could deploy the monitoring webpart to my extranet web application https://extranet.

    When I published the dashboard to http://intranet, everything works fine. But when I try to see it in https://extranet, it shows me an error. The Dashboard is unavailable. Contact your system administrator for assistance. 

    Somewhere I read that, If we get this error then it means that we don't have permissions on the dashboard. But the PerformancePoint dashboard works with the application pool account right?

    I created a service account and assigned it to application pools of PerformancePoint Monitoring Server and SharePoint Web applications deployed with Dashboard Viewer Web Part. And also assigned this account a reader permission to all the elements in the dashboard, data source and also SQL Server databases and cubes.

    It works fine with windows authentication, can't we dispaly dashboard with forms based authentication?

    My doubt is Can we dispaly PerformancePoint dashboard in SharePoint with Forms Based Authentication?

  • I remember below steps resolved the issue:

    1. Open the Dashboard Designer
    2. Click the office icon (top left corner) 
    3. Click Options button
    4. Options dialog box will be opened, click the Server tab
    5. Click the Connect button under Server Options section
    6. Then Permissions button will be enabled, click it
    7. Permissions dialog box will be opened, add the application pool account with Admin role.
    8. Click OK to close the dialog boxes.
    9. And also give the same application pool account to all the dashboard elements.
    Let me know, if it resolves or not
