          HI,

          1)What is the relation/connection between Bi Server and Presentation server?
          When we request for any report the Presentation server will generate the logical query and send to BI server then the BI server will generate the physical query from the physical layer in the RPD and fired against to Db depends on the DB credentials which is existed in the connection pool.

          2)If suppose we usually give security on reports and dashboards,where does it stores ?
          All the objects related to the webcat which will be stored in the catalog manger...as per knowledge..

          If wrong can anyon please eloborate...

          mark if helpful/correct..

          thanks,
          prassu

            I'll add a little for the 1Q;

            We all know that we got 2 servers ie. BI Server and Presentation server
            BI Server uses RPD as metadata and this server listens all NQ****.ini files from config folder.

            Presentation server; Logically sits on BI Server and dependent on BI Server to cater services to users
            This would listen .xml files from config folder

            If you need more details I would suggest to read BI Architecture

            If it make sense mark
