Power BI Report Server - Distributed environment - ALIAS

  • 1.  Power BI Report Server - Distributed environment - ALIAS

    Posted Mar 13, 2018 11:53 AM

    I have configured a distributed environment with following servers :

    - serv1 in VLAN1 for PowerBI Report Server
    - serv2 in VLAN2 for SSAS Tabular
    - serv3 in VLAN3 for DB SQL Server

    When Connecting to PBI Dasboard from an external browser, I set the connectin string to Data Source=servername:portnumber;Initial
    If I set the connection string to : Data Source=ALIASName:portnumber;Initial , connection will fail and got that I should configure Kerberos!
    Is there any limitation please about putting alias name instead of explicit servename?

    Any help will be appreciated.
