Direct Query connectivity issues with Redshift in the last few days; Production reports won't load

We've got a few Direct Query reports pointing at a Redshift cluster. This has worked great the last few weeks but over the last two or three days, we're getting schema load errors when attempting to render these reports.

When we attempt to refresh the data, we're seeing that there's an issue loading the Redshift ODBC driver (see below).

@Microsoft - Is this a known issue? Is it possibly related to a recent PBI release?

At this point, we're dead in the water with these reports and really need this to be working again.

 

Here's the detailed error:

 

Something went wrong
There was an error when processing the data in the dataset.

Same here Smiley Sad Really hurting us in prodution. We use PowerBI Azure Dedicated Capacity. Works fine in App Workspaces without dedicated capacity.

We have the same problems with updating dataset when it is comming from Redshift.

Problem ocurrs only when datasets are stored on Premium Capacity instances.

Hi @tmcdevitt,

 

I check you request id and found the trace log mentioned:

 

Processing for d736c535-0ea6-4671-b2ce-6718e5bb4d3d failed due to managed provider error Failed to save modifications to the server.

 

Processing for database d736c535-0ea6-4671-b2ce-6718e5bb4d3d with max parallelism 6 failed because of amo exception Microsoft.AnalysisServices.OperationException: Failed to save modifications to the server.

 

It seems like something wrong with with operation with save changes, maybe you can open a support ticket for this.

 

Regards,
Xiaoxin Sheng

But: Direct Query doesn't save changes. The failed save operation must be in the PowerBI stack. I've tested this with a fresh and small PowerBI report using Redshift in Direct Query mode. Same error. This means to me that Redshift atm doesn't work at all when using dedicated capacity. This is really hurting anyone who made a decision to use PowerBI in production mode with Redshift as database. Of course I also opened a support ticket.

 

We have applications in production and paying customers. How is this happenning and why is nobody at Microsoft taking care of this?

Same here. Every report connected to Redshift fails. No response from Microsoft. Unbelievable!

This is just silly. We're paying for premium capacity and, as a result, we're dead in the water on this issue with little to no response from Microsoft support.

Can we please get some sort of official response from MS on this? Their service status page is reporting that all is good... Smiley Sad

Same here! Some acknowledgement of the issue and timeline to fix it would be great -- we are also dead in the water, with business processes depending on these reports!!

I've got confirmation that this a problem with the current premium/embedded release build. No ETA for a fix though... Will get an update later today (CET).
