403. Forbidden when connecting to On-prem Tabular

We are trying to connect Power BI to a on-prem tabular model. The same user that is signed in to Power BI has the rights to the tabular. When we are trying to connect we get the the message The remote server returned an error 403. Forbidden. The user also has admin rights on the server. Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

It was probably a memory issue on the SSAS server. After a few retries we good 400 bad request instead and after a few more tries it worked. Same approach every try.

 

Thanks for responding, guys

I would run profiler on your AS box and see what account is making the connection to it.
