Install Planning Server on a stand-alone computer

Updated: 2009-06-11

You can install all the server components in Planning Server on a single computer. This stand-alone deployment should only be used for testing, development, and proof of concept for Planning Server. Microsoft does not support a stand-alone deployment for Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 in a production environment.

To install Planning Server on a single computer

  1. Insert the Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 CD. When the program starts, a startup screen appears. If it does not, browse the CD and click Setup.hta.

  2. From the installation startup screen, select Planning Server to begin the Planning Server installation.

    Prerequisite checks are run and the Microsoft Licensing Terms are presented.


    Any missing prerequisites are indicated in the Prerequisites dialog box. All prerequisite checks must succeed. If one or more fails, cancel Setup, install the missing prerequisites, and then rerun Setup.

  3. Accept the License Terms, and then click Next.

  4. On the Directory Selection page, select the installation directory you want, verify that enough disk space exists, and then click Next.


    The default path is: C:\%Program Files%\Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server.

  5. Click Install to run Planning Server Setup.

  6. Planning Server Setup runs, extracting all installation files to the directory path that you specified in step 4.

  7. On the Planning Server Setup Has Completed page, ensure that the Run the Planning Server Configuration Manager check box is selected, and then click Finish.


    If you choose to exit Setup without starting Planning Server Configuration Manager, the components will not be configured for use, and your Planning setup will remain incomplete. You must rerun Planning Server Configuration Manager to complete Setup and successfully configure your Planning Server. To rerun Planning Server Configuration Manager, do the following:

    1. Navigate to the Windows Start menu.

    2. Click Start, point to Programs, Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007, and then click Planning Server Configuration Manager.

      Planning Server Configuration Manager opens to its Welcome page and allows setup and configuration of the local Planning Server installation files.

  8. On the Planning Server Configuration Manager Welcome page, click Next.

  9. On the Prerequisites page, verify that all prerequisites have passed. If there are any that fail, note them, cancel Planning Server installation, install all prerequisites, and then rerun Planning Server Configuration Manager.

  10. On the Installation Type page, leave all settings at their default values including Standalone configuration, and then click Next.

  11. On the Databases page, in the SQL Server location field, select the computer running SQL Server or the SQL Server instance, and then click Next.


    This procedure assumes a clean SQL Server computer with no previous PerformancePoint Server databases. If previous PerformancePoint Server databases are detected on the selected SQL Server computer, then an error message appears. To correct this error, select a new SQL Server computer or SQL Server instance, or manually delete the existing PerformancePoint Server databases. Do not rename existing databases, because this will leave the *.mdf and *.ldf files in an orphaned state, and make new PerformancePoint Server database creation impossible.

    The user who is running the Planning system installation must have the sysadmin role on the computer running SQL Server that contains the Planning system database.

  12. On the Global Administrator Account page, confirm that the account in the Domain and User Name field is the account that will be used for the first member of the Global Administrator (GA) role. This account will be used to log into the Planning Administration Console for final system configuration and future administration. Click Next.

  13. On the Analysis Services Setting page, select the SQL Server Analysis Services server, and then click Next.

  14. On the Service and Application Pool Identities page, specify a domain, username and password for the service identity account. Click Next.

  15. On the System Logs page, leave the default for all options, and then click Next.

  16. On the Port Configuration page, enter the secure sockets layer (SSL) port number, and then click Next. When the SSL enforcement option is selected, the SSL port number must be entered in order to continue installation.


    Planning Server Configuration Manager does not configure SSL in your environment; it sets the Planning Web sites to accept only SSL connections. You will need to manually configure SSL for your environment in order to complete installation.

    If your network has a firewall between any computers in the PerformancePoint Server topology, the selected ports will have to be opened on the firewall device to allow Planning Server to communicate successfully.

  17. On the Validation page, pre-installation validation occurs and confirms that the installation will proceed successfully. When this finishes, click Next.

  18. On the Confirmation page, review this information, and then click Configure.

  19. On the Summary page, you can view the results of the installation. Click Close.

  20. The installation of Planning Server is complete. However, before you can begin working with models or applications, you must first create a PerformancePoint Planning application on the system that can be accessed by service clients. Open Internet Explorer and browse to: https://localhost:<AdminConsole_Port>, where <AdminConsole_Port> is the port number specified for Planning Administration Console.

    For SSL configuration, this URL will be https://localhost:<AdminConsole_Port>
