Hi @SwethaVitta,


You are using AS connector, did you try to remove and install enterprise gateway and configure? Cause AS connector ran out of serivce.

Thanks @tringuyenminh92 the issue got resloved i used server name as domain.

Hi @SwethaVitta,


As error message, you need to indicate the server name/server ip. If you have multiple SSAS instance, you need specify instance name. something like: servername or servername\instancenameofssas (my ssas server is: GA928615EB)


And you should try your usename with: domain\username (e.g: GA\pbix - my domain is GA, user: pbix)

And one thing that for another topics similar to gateway or configure concern, you could post in Desktop or Service area instead of Feedback area.Smiley Very Happy

Hi @tringuyenminh92,


Thanks for reply. but i tried all the combinations what you mentioned in this case my machine name is in-bisqlvm001 where my ssas is installed and i have only  one instance. i am still getting the same error. is there any thing i need to configure apart from these.




Hi @SwethaVitta,


Did you provide domain in the username input? Cause it needs domain\username for SSAS sources. As my observation, you are using vm, did you configure domain for your vm?

Yes i gave domain name as domain\Administrator @tringuyenminh92

yes i installed ssas in vm and all my machines are in same domain
