Hi Jose - Do you have any specific questions about how to setup Tableau server for production? After installing server on your resource you should be able to connect via the server name/url. Have a look at this information and let us know if you have any other questions.
Thank you for the quick response.
My specific question is how do I setup tableau server to connect to our companies server named 'our server'?
Right now it opens in localhost
Tableau Server is an internet ready application and is likely already set up to be able to connect locally. The name "Localhost" is just an alias name for 127.0.0.1 - the loop-back IP address for the machine calling the address so you are likely calling on the Tableau Server UI from the machine running Tableau Server. If "Our Server" is the name of your Tableau Server and you want to connect to that computer from another computer on your LAN, you'll need to determine the IP address of the machine running Tableau Server (and port number if changed from the default of 80) and put that in your browser window to connect to the web UI of the Tableau Server. This is delving slighting into the networking-side of things, but if you wanted to be able to access it outside of your LAN, you'll need to forward the ports on the router for the device. If you want it to have a "nice" name like www.jose.mytableauserver.com, you'll need to edit the DNS settings on the DNS server on your domain.
Does this address your question?
As an example I have a Tableau server named 'server_tdw' - If I am on the server I can just use localhost in the url and I will connect. If I am on another server and want to connect to it I would use http://server_tdw
I guess I would need more information if you're asking how to connect your Tableau server to another server. If that is the case can you be more specific on what you are connecting to and what you want to do?
I believe I made a mistake in installing tableau server on the computer I am using instead of on the server.
I apologize for the many questions I have I just want to ensure I do things right
I am trying to see if I install tableau server on 'our server' to see if that will work.
Thank you for the clarification. Installing on a dedicated server is considered a best practice for the best performance and use of Tableau server. Please reference this guide: Tableau Server: Everybody's Install Guide
Thank you everyone for the help.
I was able to install tableau server on 'our server'.
