      To configure Kerberos delegation for Monitoring Server, you will need to perform the following basic steps:
      1. Configure Windows SharePoint Services for Kerberos authentication: Any Windows SharePoint Services Web applications that host a Web site where you publish PerformancePoint Monitoring Server data must be configured for Kerberos authentication.
      2. Configure Internet Information Services: For each Web site associated with PerformancePoint Monitoring Server, including Windows SharePoint Services Web sites, you must modify the Web.config file and make sure that the Web site is configured to work with Kerberos.
      3. Configure Service Principal Names (SPNs): Both the service accounts for Web sites associated with PerformancePoint Monitoring Server and the services accounts for data sources containing your PerformancePoint Monitoring Server data require SPNs.
      4. Configure application pool accounts: You must update the configuration for the domain accounts used to run the application pools associated with PerformancePoint Monitoring Server and Windows SharePoint Services Web sites to be trusted for delegation.
      5. Configure client computers: On each client computer that will access PerformancePoint Monitoring Server data, confirm that Internet Explorer is configured to allow Integrated Windows authentication, and add the needed sites to the Trusted Sites list.
      6. (Optional) Configure constrained delegation: For best security, you can restrict which services are trusted for delegation.
