Unable to Connect: ODBC Database (Cloudera Hadoop Cluster)

Hello there,


My team is working on a project that requires a PowerBI report connected to a daily updating data source from our internal Cloudera Hadoop database (Impala). I'm trying to set the refresh using the on-premise gateway but this is what I keep getting. We are using Kerberos as our authentication tool to connect the server. Any insights on what I may have done wrong that is causing the error? If it's the credential issue, which user name and passcode should I be using?



My dsn looks like this and I'm able to load the data from the Hadoop server to PowerBI Desktop.




Thank you,
