SAP BW connectivity issue

When i connected to data from SAP BW, all the fields are coming into my fields (but not distingusing either measures or dimensions) and data did not come into power bi desktip (the cube is working in my bex analyser). it is showing the folloing error:


DataSource.Error: SAP Business Warehouse: An error occured when contacting the service: SYSTEM_FAILURE No roll storage space of length 1257488 available for internal storage. table blocks.


Any help on this? i am using 64bit power bi desktip on Mac Pro with 16GB RAM

Re: SAP BW connectivity issue

Satya, avoid system failure bu using Simplement's Data Liberator.  This platform surfaces SAL data in realtime, directly into SQL Server, ready for Power BI:




The tool obtains all tables, any table, and additionally delivers hierachies, all existing ECC security, and much more.  and would solve your problem easily.
