Create the Cognos administrator account
The Cognos Administrator account is already in your directory if you have used and installed Cognos in your IBM Connections 4.0 environment.
If you have not used Cognos before, but want to use it now with IBM Connections 4.5, then you need to create the Cognos Administrator User in your LDAP directory now.
: The Cognos administrator account must reside in the same LDAP directory used by IBM Connections.
If you will use an existing LDAP account, take note of the user name and password. For example, if your organization already has a Cognos deployment, you might choose to use the same administrator account with IBM Connections.
If an acceptable account does not exist already, create it now; again, note the credentials for use later. The short name of this user must be used during the Cognos installation.
