The Underlying connection was closed: The connection was closed unexpectedly.


Any thoughts?

Already viewed that thread.  That is the URL I am using, but still no success.

I can connect to the admin server.  I see it as a folder, but nothing happens when I click it.

I have also been looking for information on this, but I am not sure if this is an issue on missing user permissions or settings on the Essbase side. Unfortunately, there is not so much technical info on the Microsoft side as to state something like "in order for this Essbase connector to work, you X, Y, and Z; otherwise you cannot connect". Has anybody else been successful on getting connected to Essbase?

Has anyone been able to resolve this issue?  I am also able to connect but the folder has nothing in it.  Essbase is running in a distributed environment.

I was able to connect using the server that EAS is on. However, I do not see any cubes in the navigator.   EAS is on a different server than essbase
