On-Premise Gateway technical question



I Need info how to refresh dashbord that its dataset built from 2 different data sources.



My power bi desktop report is getting data from 2 servers xxxxxxx.150 & Server xxxxxxx.172.

I published the report to PBI online->Created dashboard and now I would like to schadual refresh.


I already have gateway installed on xxxxxxx.150 for different dashboard that already uses this gateway,

What should I do in case of 2 servers connection in my new dashboard? 


thank you!

Gateway is for Power BI Service to get your on-premise machine, you should install on-premise gateway on each server which hosts your data source, so you also need to install On-premise gateway on xxxxxxx.172 machine.

Thank you @v-sihou-msft

I know I need to download gatway to xxx.172, but should I use the same gateway name I use on xxx.150?

Should I create new gatway ?.


How should I manage the gatway cluste?. what Should I do in order to scaduale refresh to my report for both data sources?.


I need a bit help and guidance with understanding how it works.


thank you.

It will be different gateway name and then powerbi service, you will create data source under each gateway. Once it is done, your report will able to reach to your db using each gateway and at that point it will allow you to schedule data refresh.

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution.

Hi @parry2k @v-sihou-msft thank you for your assist.

I created the gateways.


I wonder where should I locate my PBI desktop report?. (its currently on my pc) should I move it the one of the servers?.

I published the report and at the dataset settings screen I have the following note :You don't have any gateway installed or configured for the data sources in this dataset. Please install a new personal gateway or configure the data source for an existing data gateway.


How can I resolve it that the data set will be recognized?.
