same server.

I am working on the node and I was able to create the datasource using

succedded but while creating the cubes using the cube wizard it throws
error saying " Connection to the data source Failed".

Any one could help me in this regards.

What are the ways to connect the oracle DB from MS Analysis Services.

Is this problem becoz of any permission settings, how do I give permissions for the users.

Unable to connect to SQL Server 2008 R2 Database without being admin of the machine


I am receiving the following error when I try to connect to my new SQL Server 2008 R2 machine:


Msg 18452, Level 14, State 1, Server <server name>, Line 1 Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication.

I'm running the following command to test the connection:

sqlcmd -S<Server Name> -E -Q"Select @@servername"

On the server I'm getting the following from the SQL Server logs


03/31/2011 20:31:58,Logon,Unknown,Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication. [CLIENT:]

03/31/2011 20:31:58,Logon,Unknown,Error: 17806<c/> Severity: 20<c/> State: 2.

What is odd is if I put the domain user in as Admin of the machine then it connects just fine.  I have tried just about everything I can find and I just cannot get it to work. Anyone have any clues???

OLAP: Build an OLAP Reporting App in ASP.NET Using SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services and Office XP


Many organizations analyze their business-critical data using Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technology. OLAP-based data mining provides a way to query multidimensional data sets and drill down into the data to find patterns. ASP.NET and the Microsoft Office Web Components (OWC) enable Web-based OLAP reporting. The OWC controls include PivotTable and Chart components that can be embedded in a Web page and scripted by programmers. In this article, the authors build a Web-based OLAP reporting app using ASP.NET, OWC, and SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to illustrate the process.

HTTP 401: Unauthorized when trying to specify reporting services for integration, cannot connect to




I am trying to install reporting services and join it into existing service farm.

Main  MOSS 2007 is on one pc, with config bases etc, while reporting services, reporting services db will be on other pc. 

We are using same domain account to run sharepoint services and reporting services. 

I've installed web part of MOSS on that other computer, also reporting services and sql server, set reporting services in integration mode.

Either way, it wont work for me:


If i am running the service of reporting services as Network Service account, then the /reportserver page will complain about some generic error "probably you dont have access to the farm if you are in integrated mode" etc.... 

I've read that i should include networkservice into a group WSS_WPG which i did, no luck anyway, same error

If i try to type the adress into the integration with reporting services in moss admin page, i will get error like "expected xml received html" and alot of red text.


If i switch service to run from domain account (the one that is used for running sharepoint on the domain) (we did the spn thing, didnt work either), the /reportserver page will open
