Connection open intermittent error while reading in Analysis Services

Searching the forums I see several posts for this error, but no solutions, so posting my version of the issue, hopefully I can get a solution.


Attempting to download a Power BI paginated report to a .CSV file, using "connect-powerbiserviceaccount" to connect to Azure, and then using "Invoke-RestMethod" to pass in the request for an export.


The export request is successful, and I can query the export ID and see the status change from "notstarted" to "running", but then it always fails:


status : Failed
error : @{code=Connection_Error_NotOpen; message=RootActivityId(<GUID>)
Connection open intermittent error while reading in Analysis Services, needs retry.;
