Reconfigure the Server

When you install Tableau Server for the first time, you do initial configuration of the server as part of the installation. You can run the Tableau Server Configuration utility after installing Tableau Server to make additional configuration changes. Some configuration options are only available when you run the configuration utility after installation. You can also use the tabadmin command line tool to make configuration changes. Configuration setting changes are written to the tabsvc.yml file located in the <install drive>:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\config directory.

Note: You cannot switch between Active Directory and Local Authentication. These options can only be configured during the initial installation of Tableau Server.

To change a Tableau Server configuration setting:

  1. Stop the server by selecting All Programs > Tableau Server 10.4 > Stop Tableau Server on the Windows Start menu.

  2. Select Configure Tableau Server on the Windows Start menu.

  3. If you are using an Active Directory account for the server’s Run As User account, enter its password on the General tab.

  4. Make your configuration change.

  5. Click OK.

  6. Start the server by selecting All Programs > Tableau Server 10.4 > Start Tableau Server on the Windows Start menu.
