Can't connect by Dashboard Designer to data RRS feed

    Hi folks,

     

    Im in a situation which i can't get over it.

     

    I have the PPS installed in a w2003 server , I'm able to connect to it from different clients (http://server:40000/central/) or by the localhost, but when I'm in that stage i would like to retrieve the data i had before i mean cubes, database, etc....but I can't connect to it.

     

    I'm creating a new data source and afterwards I'm trying to select the server from where I want to retrieve the data (i tried by client or the same localhost) and I'm getting the same error message " You are not able to connect to that server. Please check the address is correct"

     

    Im using the first option " Use standard connection"

     

    What shall i do?

     

    Thanks,

     

    Kind Regards

  • Hi JP,

     

    Please make sure PPSMonitoringWebApplication Pool User needs to have SQL Level access to underlying Cube, Database.

     

    Dashboard Designer online help will provide additional information.  Best practices for managing dashboard metadata and data sources information can be found in this URL http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc983679.aspx
