SSAS data connection issues

Issue: Test Connection failure


  • You get the error below when you try to test the connection to a SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) database:

    Test failed: Either the user, NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE [or the account you're using], does not have access to the [your SSAS db name] database, or the database does not exist.



Issue: Unable to connect using Windows Impersonation with Specified credentials


  • You are trying to connect to a SSAS (SQL Sever Analysis Services) database on the same machine as Dundas BI.
  • Test Connection fails with error similar to: Either the user, NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE does not have access ...


  • Make sure the Relay Credentials option is unchecked. This option only applies when making outbound network connections, which is not the case in this scenario because you are connecting to a database on the same machine as Dundas BI.
