  • Hey Oscar,
    Sorry about this. Can you share a screenshot of the error message? Are you getting this error message when you configure the AS Connector?

  • Hey Oscar,
    Can you go to Windows event logs & check for the Data Management Gateway? then share these event logs with us.

    where to look for event logs - check this - http://blogs.msdn.com/cfs-filesystemfile.ashx/__key/communityserver-blogs-components-weblogfiles/00-00-01-60-20/0743.14.png

    I presume you have re-tried installing/configuring the connector. Most likely the issue is a timeout issue. The event logs will help us understand the situation better. We haven't seen this issue before & so we need more information from you.

  • Hi Oscar,

    the events you shared did not help in diagnosing the issue. can you please do the following & share the trace files with us? Looks like an uncommon issue & so we need your help to debug it.

    1. Run command prompt as Administrator
                  a. cd /d "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Data Management Gateway\1.0\Shared"
                  b. dmgcmd -BeginEtw
    2. Restart Gateway service - go to local services, search for 'Data Management Gateway Host Service' & restart it
    3. Wait for about 2-3 minutes after service restarted
    4. Run connector, then turn off the trace in command line 
                  a. dmgcmd -EndEtw (run this command to turn off trace)
    5. Get the trace file "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Data Management Gateway\1.0\Shared\*.etl"

    Share the .etl file with us for further investigation.

  • I also keep getting error message "Register the Analysis Services Connector failed." after having entered the Analysis Services-connector settings and pressing next in the setup wizard. Have installed the latest version and also tried restarting the Data Management Gateway Host Service with no succes.
