See the following scenario depicting the Central Management Servers keeping the BI platform components working together.
Administering the Central Management Server (CMS) is important for managing and maintaining the overall BI platform.
The CMS System database serves as a central repository for system configuration, security, and scheduling information.
The administrator needs to ensure that there is at least one Running and Enabled Central Manager Server in the system. In addition, you need to ensure connectivity between the CMS Server and CMS System database. Without connection to the system database, the BI platform may not function correctly or may not be able to retrieve essential configuration data.
