Hari,

You can but you have to put Sense in Legacy Mode.

In the QMC, under the Advanced properties for the engine you can uncheck the standard mode option.

This is for Sense Server.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Kevin,

Do you know any other other than changing in QMC.

Thanks

Hari,

Sorry for not getting back to you but I believe that this is the only way.  Creating connections gives you the ability to secure them and grant access based on a role, etc.

Hope this helps.
