I wondering if you have any useful links to documentation which describes a Cognos TM1 installation with focus on how to setup the architecture. We are having difficulties to read in the IBM documentation about how the different components (TM1 Admin Server, TM1 Server, TM1 Application Server, TM1 Application Gateway etc.) should be placed in our different network zones and how the communication between them looks like.
NOTICE: developerWorks Community will be offline May 29-30, 2015 while we upgrade to the latest version of IBM Connections. For more information, read our upgrade FAQ.

Web servers/Gateways for Cognos Business Intelligence, Cognos Planning, Metrics Manager, Cognos Mobile
Application servers for Cognos Business Intelligence, Cognos Planning, Metrics Manager, Cognos Mobile
SQL server with databases for Audit, Content Store, Planning Store, Metric Store

Re: Information about installation and architecture setup for Cognos TM12012-08-01T13:44:52Z in response to JonaaxTM1 is far simpler to deploy than Cognos. You'd normally put all components on one server. If you are intending to have multiple TM1 instances you may want to run them on different servers but you may not need to. I know of customers who split TM1Web from the server but not many.
You should probably say how you are going to deliver TM1 data (and input formats) to your user base, as there are around ten possibilities (mad I know).
Re: Information about installation and architecture setup for Cognos TM12012-08-01T14:35:39Z in response to dusherwoOK I understand, I don't know how we are going to use TM1 yet and thats why I'm wondering how the TM1 components are communicating with each other and how the client software components need to access the different TM1 components.
My currrent view is that all servers running TM1 components need incoming port 9300 open and the server running TM1 Admin Server needs the following ports open 5495/5498/12345/123456. TM1 Web is accesing the TM1 Admin Server to know what TM1 Servers available, then it also require access to the actual TM1 Servers.
