fail to open excel services report in performancepoint dashboard in MOSS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have installed MOSS + performancepoint on 2 servers farm.

    When we try to deploy dashboard with Excel services report it get stack on the "operation in progress"

    Same excel report is working fine directly from MOSS and from performancepoint preview

    Also another scorecard webpart on the same dashboard is working properly.

  • Hi Doren,


    The issue may be due to PPSMonitoringWebService does not have access to Excel Services.   You may need to take a look into Central Administration | SharedServices Administration | Excel Service Settings | Edit Excel Services Settings.

  • Ok

    I fixed the problem

    1. I set all performancepoint application pools and office server application pool identities to privileged domain account

    2. I add this key in the <appSettings> section in web.config of the MOSS site collection.
    file is in C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80
    add the following key in the <appSettings> section

    <add key="Bpm.WebPartResourcePath" value="/sites/<<subsite>>/_wpresources/Microsoft.PerformancePoint.Scorecards.WebParts/" />

  • Hi Doren,

    I am having similar issue, could you please advise how did you managed to change OfficeServerApplicationPool identity to domain user account.
    Each time I do it reverts back to NetworkService.
