Manage projects on remote BI server?
I have the BI server running on a linux machine and have installed the design studio on a local windows machine.
I was wondering, is it possible to manage a project on a remote BI server?
Help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Can you elaborate on "manage a project?"
If i understand
If you want to develop solutions that run on your linux box from a remote machine you could always map a shared drive of the linux machine being the pentaho solutions folder using Samba maybe? and then you can manage the Pentaho web interface by setting the pentaho IP address in the $pentahoroot/jboss/server/default/deploy/pentaho.war/WEB-INF/web.xml file
Thanks for replying, I greatly appreciate your taking the time.
hazamonzo has the right idea of what I'm trying to do, but I am restricted from mapping a drive. Is there a way to connect and develop from the design studio or eclipse?
One of the Account managers at Pentaho said it was possible but could not give me any more information and directed me to the forums.
Again, thanks in advance for your help.
How about FTP access. It does require a little more work but if i remembered correctly when i used to use eclipse for my php development you can get a eclipse FTP plugin
It doesnt look like its being maintained anymore though =(
Aside from that icant think of any other methods.
Just out of interest, why cant you map the network driver of your server?
All the best,
I'll look into your suggestion.
I can't map because our network admin tells us no.
Yup, Network admins are a bunch of swines alright
The other alternative is to install some VNC server software on the server machine and all the tools you need to create / edit solutions on the server machine itself.
You could then VNC into your server with a virtual desktop and it would be as if you were actuall sitting on the server desktop itself. This is of course if you server has a GUI.
Worth a try =)
All the best,
