Excel Services delegation using Classic Mode Authentication

  • Excel Services delegation using Classic Mode Authentication Evan M.

    Every where I'm reading about setting up Excel Services for delegation so that it can connect to Analysis Services running on separate server is based around using Claims based authentication to authenticate to the web application. However, right now we are using Classic Mode Authentication, and I can't find ANY information on how to set things up in this scenario.

    Is it even possible to get this going without using Claims Authentication?

  • I have a two machine set-up, with MOSS 2007 installed on one server (Machine A), and SQL Server 2008 installed on the other (Machine B). In order to run SS Reporting Services in SharePoint integration mode on Machine B, I've read that I need to perform a minimal install of SharePoint on Machine B, and am wondering why. From a couple of error messages I see that it seems like Reporting Services in integration mode makes use of the SharePoint Object Model, but I haven't explored any further.

  • We have a SharePoint 2007 deployment which will have a substantially large document library. My client wants the ability to export this library to an Excel spreadsheet, but specifically wants the ability to divide the spreadsheet into several worksheets based on a specific field. Is this possible to accomplish in WSS 3.0, through the object model or otherwise? There is a out-of-the-box Export to Spreadsheet, but it does not appear to support automated subdivision of the list items into separate worksheets. I do not know if Excel Services that come with MOSS are capable of it, but we do

  • I am trying to pull data from the list.asmx web service from a console application. I am using clams based authentication, and whenever only integrated Windows Authentiation is checked everything works fine. Whenever I also check Enable Forms Based Authentication I start getting an Acccess is denied error when I try to connect to the service.
