SAP BW 4 HANA - Power BI Report Server - No Connection

Hi all,


trying to connect PBI Report Server to SAP BW 4 HANA (via SAP ODBC Driver).


Data is shown in PBI Desktop (RS) but not when saved to the PBI Report Server (both on the same server located).


Trying to check the data source (from Report Server) by using a database user gives the error:

ERROR [IM002] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified


Anyone with the same problem / any advice to find a solution?


Thanks in advance!
