Data source changed to chinese

All connection strings for Dashboards on Power BI Report Server have been changed to Chinese, and no longer work.


This has already happened several times and the restart of the server helped before. But now restarting does not help.

I have saw same issue before in very early updates, seems this is happened again in the new version. Stopping and restarting Report Server should brought back the connection strings. Also, please re-enter login credentials and passwords and re-created schedule refresh if you have.

Stopping and starting the server helped in the January 2021 version. Now stopping and starting the server does not solve the problem. We have several dozen reports, the problem is in each of them.
