On-Premises Data Gateway - issues with multiple domains

Doing a POC with a customer recently we had an issue installing the gateway in a domain that was different to the Azure tenancy being used. 

 

  1. Domain A - Staff and Azure subs
  2. Domain B - Users and on-premise server hosting

 

We attempted to install the DG on a server in domain B, and used a user registered in domain A to install the gateway. Everything was successful and could see the correct tenancy IDs in the property files etc, however the gateway could not be located in the Azure sub being used for the POC.

 

Eventually we installed a DG on a machine in domain A and reused the user and everything worked correctly.

 

I have read all the documentation & troubleshooting articles and there is no mention of multiple domain issues.

 

Anyone know if this multi domain setup is supported?

@nikolaiblackie,

Do you get error message when adding data source within the gateway in Power BI Service? What is the detailed error message?

When you install gateway on a server in domain B, just make sure that you are able to access data source of domain A from this server(you can use Power BI Desktop to test the connection), this way , you can successfully add data source within gateway.

Reagrds,

Re: On-Premises Data Gateway - issues with multiple domains

The issue is with the creation of a gateway in Azure subscriptions. The data gateway was not registered with the Azure subscription. Only when we installed the DG in another domain did it correctly registered.
