Power BI Error when Uploading or saving a file



We have a Dev and production Power BI server both with version 1.6.7236.4246 installed, using various versions of the client including the september release when I try to do either a Save As, or upload report I get an error I dont get the error when doing exactly the same on Dev.


The error I get when i try to add a report using Upload Icon is "There was an erro uploading your .pbix file. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the fike extension matches the format of the file"

The Error I get when using "Save As in the Power BI Desktop Client is "An error occurred while attempting to save the report to Power BI Report Server.


For the desktop client I have tried versions 2.70.5494 and 2.73.5586.1501

Pleas ehelp
