We kicked off the first BI User group meeting for Austin last night and had a very decent turn out for our first meeting.

For our first topic, I covered the sticky points of implementing Kerberos in order to support Reporting Services 2008 running in integrated mode in a MOSS farm. As doing the entire implementation would take longer than the time allotted for our meeting, I will be posting a write-up for anyone to download and see all the steps.

Based on feedback from the group, I will expand this to show a four server farm and all the necessary steps there-in; I had on my laptop an AD server, Web and App and database, but as I can live with slogging performance for the sake of writing a walk through, I will add the last machine to the line up so that it represents the way many in the BI User group and our customers have their MOSS farms implemented.

Also in this mix is a few of us waiting with bated breath so see the SharePoint Kerberos Configuration Utility, something put together by Spencer Harbar, but that no one has seen released yet – if I can get a copy, or find where he is eventually going to post it, I will be sure to update that reference here.
