[6.1] FRx - Any Installation Tips?

Todd,

The good news is that the SQL Server install is almost completely painless.
Unless you intent to use a federated DB (which is completely useless for BI)
you can simply install according to the defaults and you should be good to
go.

Subject: [Vantage] [6.1] FRx - Any Installation Tips?

We finally bit the bullet and pulled the trigger on purchasing FRx for our
financial reporting. I'm hoping it doesn't really turn out as career
suicidal as that sounds. My thanks to all those who have responded to my
many questions over the past 4-5 months.

So for those actually running FRx were there any particular "gotchas" in the
install and implementation process? I am doing this on my own and have no
experience with SQL Server. We purchased SQL Server 2005 separately so I
need to install that first then tackle FRx and the connections to the
Vantage DB. My main concern is missing something critical in the SQL Server
setup and having FRx not work correctly with it. I am hoping to try this
over the New Year's weekend - perhaps Monday when our office and plant are
closed. Holidays were made for IT projects.

Any hints, tips or experience stories would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Todd Caughey
