Issue with Publishing PBIX File

This issue just started for me this week Monday.

I've been unable to publish my pbix data set getting an error:

Unexpected Error - Unable to write data to the transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

I've read other's suggestions here and below are the steps I've taken.

* Original PBIX file was about 80MB

* Redo on the query and narrowed it down to 40MB

- Attempted to publish and still failed, directly from the PowerBI Desktop and Web import.

 

Another attempt:

* Deleted the original dataset from the web and all reports corresponding

* ran the PBIX query and saved it with a different name

- Attempted to publish and still failed, directly from the PowerBI Desktop and Web import.

 

I'm kind of lost on the next steps. I've already sent the "Frown" to the PowerBI team and no new updates.Screen Shot 2016-04-06 at 2.44.12 PM.png

Re: Issue with Publishing PBIX File

Hi @a_mixed_life,

 

I had a similar issue yesterday and tried several things including the 'new file' -> 'publish' approach to no avail.

 

Today I published my original file but NOT to a group workspace but to 'My Workspace'. This worked without problems as it was the first time I did that (so no update of the dataset).

 

However, after this, I published the same file to the group workspace and this time the update did work.

 

I have no way of knowing, whether this was a coincidence or actually related to the interim publishing to My Workspace, but perhaps you want to give it a try.

 

Best,

Sascha

Re: Issue with Publishing PBIX File

Hi Kris, 

 

How about you create a fresh new .pbix file and then publish it?

 

Please also go to File -> Options and settings -> Options -> Diagnostics and click "enable tracing". Then publish the "Sales Dashboard.pbix" file and have a check on the logs in the traces folder. Please post here any error message logs you found useful.

Re: Issue with Publishing PBIX File

Thanks for replying back to this. I've been doing a work around on this.

I'll give this a try tomorrow to see if it'll work and I'll report back.

Re: Issue with Publishing PBIX File

Hi guys, 

 

I had a similar issue some time back. I had to delete the dataset, logged out of every single itnerface and then it published without any qualms. Unsure what exactly went wrong but, yeah that's what made it work.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks
Kaz

Re: Issue with Publishing PBIX File

This actually worked! Thanks! I kept holding off on the update and since you mentioned this had fixed it for you, there was no choice but to update.

My work around can now be buried.

Re: Issue with Publishing PBIX File

Hi,

 

I have recently switched laptops and now on the new laptop I am getting this error and can no longer publish any pbix files. Initially this was only intermittent on the new laptop but now it's all pbix files all of the time. None of them will now publish. I can still publish from the old laptop.

 

I even rolled back my power bi version to the same version of my old laptop and that doesn't fix it.

 

I have tried the workarounds mentioned in this thread but no joy. Anyone having this problem still?

 

Thanks

Re: Issue with Publishing PBIX File

I'm also having this issue.  I've tried all of the suggestions above but none worked.  I've created and published many dashboards previously with no issues.  The file is about 235MB but i have coworkers with even larger files and have no issues publishing.  Any other suggestions?
