Intermittent The execution failed for the shared data set

I am getting intermittent errors on reports. I have a new installation of PBI Server, 15.0.1103.234, Native, with remote SQL server.

This report has (3) shared datasets, (2) from SharePoint Lists and (1) from Oracle. The report and the SharePoint datasets are set to always run with the most recent data.

The Oracle dataset is set to use cached copies, which expire on a shared schedule with a refresh plan. The cache refresh of this dataset never fails.

The report works most of the time.

I get errors like this in the browser and Microsoft.ReportingServices.DataExtensions.SharePointList.SPDPException in the Reporting Services Service log. The report does not have a dataset called 'DataSet1' like the error message implies.

I refresh the browser once, sometimes twice, and the report runs without errors.

I haven't been able to find a pattern so any tips on how to troubleshoot this are appreciated.

I'd be checking with your Oracle DBAs. The last part of the error message "An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host" indicates that Oracle probably cancelled this query. And the fact that it is intermittent probably points to maybe some load based condition on the source server.
