Powerpivot configuration for automatic refresh: no error but no refresh RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,


    I have installed Sharepoint 2010 and powerpivot ctp3. Then i have configured it via the powerpivot configuration tool as suggested. 

    Now i want to automatically refesh my powerpivot data every day.


    My problem is that i can configure the data refresh via the calender but the refresh never happens.

    I don't get an error message that something goes wrong or something like that.

    It seams that the data refresh job is not working but i had a look at it and it should run every minutes.

    I also can't find any error information in the server logs.


    When I ran the  powerpivot configuration tool at install alle the steps are made automatically which are suggested at this site(http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff773327.aspx)?

    Are there any things I have to do after running the  powerpivot configuration tool?


    Thanks for your help.
