Cannot Publish Power BI Report

We have a dev, test, and production environment for Power BI Report Server.  The dev and test environment are setup on stand alone servers with both front end web server and back end SQL database on each box respectively.  These servers work fine.  However the production server is setup with seperate servers for the SQL back end, and web front end; each on their own box.

 

We can upload paginated reports, excel spreadsheets, and so on to the production server.  It only errors whenever we try and save Power BI Reports to the server.

 

Here is the error when trying to "Save As" to the prod server:

Here is the error from the RSPortal Log file:

Re: Cannot Publish Power BI Report

All -

 

I finally unistalled everything (even dropping the reportserver and tempreportesrver databases), and re-installed fresh.  This seemed to resolve the issue as I am now able to publish Power BI reports either via the "Save as" option or uploading from the Power BI portal.

 

To uninstall simply run the setup and choose the ininstall option.  Finish up by using SSMS to drop the associated databases.

 

I'm assuming this happened after updating Power BI from one version to another.

Re: Cannot Publish Power BI Report

can you try few things

 

on the report portal,

1. can you try to detele a existing file

2. are you able to upload that pxib directly from report portal 

3. i think it's about infrastructure issue.

Re: Cannot Publish Power BI Report

It looks like there may have been an issue setting up the Power BI endpoint which handles PBI report requests or the service account you have setup has limited permissions. Can you try running the following command and let me know if you see an entry for a PBI endpoint, should look similar to (Reserved URL: http://+:80/powerbi/) however the port number should match whatever port you used in the config tool. Additionaly can you check the config tool and let me know what you have set for your service account, you may also want to compare it to what you have configured for your other environments.

Re: Cannot Publish Power BI Report

@manceelee:

1. can you try to detele a existing file - On the server and web portal: Yes, I can delete files on the server and anything currently on the web portal.

2. are you able to upload that pxib directly from report portal - no, this also results in an even more generic error.

3. i think it's about infrastructure issue. - Probably

 

@mgmeyer:

I ran the command and the "Reserved URL: http://+:80/powerbi/" line does exist.  As far as the user account it is just the default PowerBI NT Service account being used.  This is the same for the other environement.  The SQL connection uses a AD service account we created.

Re: Cannot Publish Power BI Report

Hi,
We are facing the same problem, however, our enviroment is setup in one server only. 
Same error message, same log information.

Re: Cannot Publish Power BI Report

@Jasel, what about the previously reports? did you restored them? How? restoring the databases? Here we have a several objects / reports.

Re: Cannot Publish Power BI Report

Hey @renato_ribeiro -

I was kind of lucky and didn't have too many reports to re-publish, about 15 or so.  We keep the pbix files on a secure network share, but plan on implementing some kind of TFS solution soon.

 

I needed everything up and running ASAP so I just wiped everything out and re-published.  You can try just uninstalling Power BI, and keeping the the databases, just reconnect to an already existing database when going through configuration manager.

 

Alternatively the back up / restore process is pretty much identical to SSRS if you've worked with that in the past.  If not, here you go:

Good luck!

Re: Cannot Publish Power BI Report

I tried once, uninstall the current report server -> restore the key -> use old existing repot server database -> failed to load previous report 

 

I have to create a new report server database and upload all reports again, please let me know if I miss anything to recover this.

 

Thanks!

Re: Cannot Publish Power BI Report

Hi @Jasel, I've installed a whole new server and new database. When start testing, face same problem! For some reports I could save them, even in a several times, rewriting then. For others, the most, same problem, mainly when I try to re-write it.
