DirectQuery Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'

Hi all,


I have Power BI report with DirectQuery to MS SQL 2016 database. Report works locally on Power BI Server, and works remotely in Chrome in my admin credentials


But report don't work on any else user. Report returns the error:


Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON'.. The exception was raised by the IDbConnection interface

Ahh, I forgot something. You can workarround this problem if you set an user name and password on the report datasource, instead of the default Windows Authentication.

Tnx, but only Windows authentification is acceptable for my case

Hello, I have the same error when I use Chrome.


It works when I use IE.

I tried to import settings from IE but I still have the same error.

It's typical Kerberos issue. AUTHORITY\ANONYMOUS LOGON.  Can you just use the sql login while connecting to data source or you should enable Kerberos in order to cover double-hop scenario.Adam made a nice video which explains Kerberos configuration -

That guide only explains how to set up Kerberos with SSAS as a datasrouce, rather than an SQL Server.


Has anyone managed to resolve their Kerberos double hop issue? We're still getting the error that than original poster specified.


Our setup:

Report Server: RS1 running under a domain account DOMAIN\RSService

Database Server holding the data for the Report Server reports: DB1 running SQL Server under a domain account DOMAIN\DBService


SPNs set for RS1

  • http/RS1 DOMAIN\RSService
  • http/ DOMAIN\RSService

SPNs set for DB1:

  • MSSQLSvc/ DOMAIN\DBService
  • MSSQLSvc/DB1:1433 DOMAIN\DBService
  • MSSQLSvc/ DOMAIN\DBService

Constrained delegation has been set up on RS1, and it allows authentication to DB1 for the above SPNs.

ReportServer config has also got <RSWindowsNegotiate/> set as a <AuthenticationType>.

We manage to query the reports successfully via DirectQuery in Google Chrome, not as much success using Internet Explorer (v11).



I am having the same problem with Direct Query of MS SQL Server in Azure.


I am using SQL authentication. It works in Power BI desktop. After publishing, report shows the error (see below)

I have also updated published dataset with credential using Basic method with SQL authentication credentials.


I am not sure what have I missed here. Please help.



Here are the details.

That is the classic problem known as Kerberos Double Hop.

Please ask to your AD administrator to set the right SPNs for your SSRS and allow delegation between the SSRS and SQL Server.


This is not a problem of the Power BI 🙂
