The dataset returns the following error:




Can somebody tell me how we can resolve the partially refesh error?

Thank you for your response.


Only in one of the gateway clusters is the ODBC source defined and findable. Is that problemen? Until monday last week it was not.

yes, it is a problem. The Azure service has a built in load balancer that randomly picks the gateway cluster member it offers the mashup job (or the direct query) to.  Maybe you got lucky until now that the service always picked the cluster member that had a functioning connection.

One of your gateway cluster members is missing the ODBC definition for that data source. On all gateway cluster members go to the 64bit ODBC control panel, System DSN, and do a test of that connection.
