    Great article and video. We look forward to the video for setting up a Perimeter Network with an External facing web site. We have followed through the documentation for this in the EP admin guide, but still its not relatively pain-free to follow. So we look fwd to the hints and tips.

    I am installing AX 2009 EP in a NLB cluster. (Web server 1 and web server2). this is a distributed environment.

    the EP site is having a host header name. I have installed WSS 3.0 SP1 and created an app pool with host header. I have run AX 2009 EP install wizard (with configure for sharepoint services and create website unselected in web server 2 && configure for sharepoint services selected, create web site unselected in web server 1). The installation wizard showed Installed in both servers.

    When i try to create a EP site from Create site collection option in Sharepoint Central admin, error message is displayed as

    A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond

    where is the Virtual IP and port 80. Also, in the event viewer, i am also seeing error message like Unable to create odc files. Verify the server name in BIAnalysisServer table in AOT.

    The database server is a named instance in the format of computernameinstancename.

    if i open the BIAnalysisServer in the AOT, the server name is defaulted to localhost, I tried to change the db server name to computernameinstancename, ity also didnt work. i got the same error as shown above.

    Do i need to configure something?
