We couldn't connect to the Analysis Services server. Make sure you've entered the connection string

Hi,

 

We just applied Jan 2021 update.  Co-worker has designed a report using sql server using direct query.  When deploying to the server, getting the error: We couldn't connect to the Analysis Services server. Make sure you've entered the connection string correctly.

 

"An unexpected error occurred

Switched to using the actual server name instead of a DNS Cname and still getting the same result. 

 

Any advice?

Thanks,

Sam

Thanks to everyone for your help.  I found the issue yesterday after I created a working report and uploaded to the server.  Teammate tried to download to edit and got an error similar to 'could read past end of stream'.  That lead to me asking for his desktop version which was October!  Once he updated everything was working.  😅

Hello, I got the same error I guess. But I do not have the desktop version. I am just an user of the report. How do I fix that? This is the error:

Could there be an a connection to SSAS in the report even though it is not used in the report?

 

It's odd that this error is happening at deployment and not when trying to run the report, that's when I'm used to seeing this one. Usually it doesn't try to connect to SSAS at deployment.

 

I get this same error when deploying a report for the first time, before the data source is updated with credentials, so maybe it is behind the scenes SSAS usage by Power BI with every data source.  Just a guess.

Can you please share the error screenshot where you are getting?

What are the data source user credentials you are using in PBIRS?

Are you able to connect to SSAS from the desktop?

are you able to connect SSAS from PBIRS Machine (try to connect SSAS thru excel in PBIRS Machine.)

 

There are logs in "E:\Program Files\Microsoft Power BI Report Server\PBIRS\LogFiles" to see if that helps you.

 

 







Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution! Appreciate your Kudos!!

Proud to be a Super User!




1. make sure report server and ssas server are on the same machine
2. make sure you use machine name and not server alias
3. use ssas http access if all else fails

what to do if they are on different servers?

I've updated my question to include the full error text.  We are connecting to SQL Server, not SSAS.  Using SQL Login type creds.  Many other reports are functioning, but this new one is not.  I will try to create a new report as a test.  Maybe this user did something odd. 

 

Update: recreated his query using same login and direct query type and it worked.  I noticed that in the data source on the report server for my functioning report contains "persist security info=False".   That's the only difference I'm seeing, but the data sources are configured similarly in Power BI Desktop.  

Hi @samgreene1 ,

This may be the cause.

For Persist Security Info, valid values are True or False.

When set to True, security information, such as the user identity or password previously specified on the connection string, can be obtained from the connection after the connection is made.

The default value is False. Then security information is discarded after it is used to open the connection, ensuring that an untrusted source does not have access to security-sensitive information.
