  • Question

  • I'm having issues with Dashboard Designer and SQL tables I can get the list of databases. The first time I choose one I get the famous error messafge and I click again and I can select my database, but I get an error when selecting a table. ( Data Connections in Dashboard Designer )

    Here is my RSAuth block


    Authentication Providers in Security for SP is set to NTLM

    And here is the error:

    The following data source cannot be used because PerformancePoint Services is not configured correctly.
    Data source location: http://sitename/BIDODI/Data Connections for PerformancePoint/5_.000
    Data source name: New Data Source 2
    Monitoring Service was unable to retrieve a Windows identity for "XXXDOMAIN\XUser".  Verify that the web application authentication provider in SharePoint Central Administration is the default windows Negotiate or Kerberos provider.  If the user does not have a valid active directory account the data source will need to be configured to use the unattended service account for the user to access this data.
    Exception details:

  • ok, I get this after adjusting my authentication, yet again. This is the error when using the drop down.

    So I decided to open visual studio and grab thre connection string and paste it into the text box. So, I am able to connect. I click the table drop down and I get an error the first time. I click the table drop down in desparation and it works.The first time I hit the table I get this error:

    PerformancePoint Services could not connect to the specified data source. Verify that either the current user or Unattended Service Account has read permissions to the data source, depending on your security configuration. Also verify that all required connection information is provided and correct.

    PerformancePoint Services error code 201.
    All is well now I guess, but the Dashboard designer has issues when connecting to a sql table.
