Use Architect or Perspectives 10.2.x to Planning Analytics

“TM1 Architect cannot connect to server.” You might get this error when you try to connect an old version of Architect or Perspectives to a Planning Analytics server. One of the quirks of TM1 is that old versions of Architect and Perspectives are able to connect to newer versions of TM1 or Planning Analytics, but NOT vice-versa (so you couldn’t, for example, connect Architect from Planning Analytics 2.0.9 to a TM1 10.2.2 model).

The configuration details for the new TM1 Analytics server are listed below. Don’t worry, you can change them back and forth whenever you need to between 10.2.x and PA.

Note also that in Excel, you cannot have Planning Analytics for Excel client active at the same time as Perspectives.

Steps to Connect Architect/Perspectives 10.2.2 to Planning Analytics Server

Planning Analytics Server Side

Step 1

Ensure you have entries in tm1s.cfg to match the following (obviously using the real IP address of the TM1/Planning Analytics server):


Step 2

Update Cognos Configuration on the TM1/Planning Analytics server to reflect the “Support pre-TLS v1.2 clients” property is set to True.

Architect or Perspectives Client Side

Step 3

The next thing you need to do is save the attached certificate (ibmtm1.arm) in the installation folder on your hard drive, probably C:Program Filesibmcognostm1binssl. You will need to unzip the file first though!

Open the Architect or Perspectives and select File>Options. Then populate:

  • Admin Host

  • Certificate ID

with the details below and click OK twice. Then you should be right to go.
