Configuring Cognos® Business Intelligence to use IBM® HTTP Server

IBM® Cognos® Business Intelligence uses the same IBM® HTTP Server as IBM® Connections, but you must configure Cognos® Business Intelligence to work with that server.

About this task

If you installed and configured IBM HTTP Server before installing Cognos, you must manually map the Cognos application to the HTTP Server as described in Mapping applications to IBM HTTP server and Updating web addresses in IBM HTTP Server.

After you have configured IBM HTTP Server for the Cognos application, complete these tasks to configure the Cognos® BI Server and the Cognos® Transformer components to use HTTP:

Note: Check the LotusConnections-config.xml file to ensure the web addresses specified in the href and ssl_href of the Cognos application have been updated to the HTTP server.
