In order to run Perf Point, the PerfPoint and Secure store service need to be started.  That's all that is required.

There arent any other services that should be started via Central Admin?  

- I have a SQL server hosting the SharePoint Database
- I have a existing WFE controlling the current enabled services and central admin for SharePoint in general
- I just created another WFE to run only the applications/services listed in my opening statement
- I have another SQL server hosting the database for SQL Reporting Services and I like to have all new databases created for Secure Store and PerfomancePoint Services to point to this server instead of the existing SharePoint database server

My intent here was to enable PerformancePoint, PowerPivot for SharePoint, Secure Store Services and Excel Services all on this new WFE. By doing this, I can actually stop them on my existing WFE, correct?

Do you have any good documentation on about setting up PerformancePoint Services to run properly?

Using a PerformancePoint Data Connection on an Analysis Cube works fine in our environment – as long as the “unattended service account” authentication is used.

Switching to “per-user identity” in the dashboard designer leads to the following error:

"PerformancePoint Services was unable to connect to "xxxxxxx". Verify that the server name is correct and that you have permissions to connect to the server. To enable you to connect to the remote server with your credentials the domain administrator must configure Kerberos between all instances of the PerformancePoint Service application and the data source server."

Please help!
