When do you need the Binding Credentials for AD Namespace in Cognos Configuration?

Technote (FAQ)


When would you need to add the "binding credentials" into Cognos Configuration for an Active Directory Nanespace?


If Cognos 8 is running on the machine in the same forest as the configured domain/forest, you do not need to specifically set the bind credentials. However, if you run cross forest, then, you must provide the bind credentials

You would also need the binding credentials if AD is not configured to allow anonymous bind
