    Configure Tableau server and Active Directory in different machine

    Ashok M



      I have configured my Active directory in a server machine.

      Connected my client machine with the server.

      I have installed 'Tableau Server' in my client machine.


      I have problems in configuring 'Tableau Server'.

      - Under 'User Authentication' - Selected 'Use Active Directory'. Given domain name.

      - Under 'Server Run As User' - Given User as 'domain name\user name'  and password of the Active Directory User.

      - Given Port Number and enabled 'Open port in Windows Firewall'.


      When I tried to log on, getting an error. 'Username and/or password are incorrect'.


      Q: Whether the Active Directory and Tableau Server needs to be installed in the same machine ?


      Thanks in Advance
