Gateway non domain



I have a OnpRemise Gateway on a non domain Server, i have setup the Gateway and Mapped the user to a local user.


My question is can the gateway be configured for machines on a non domain?


As when i try to access the deployed report within it says there is a data source error



ErrorCode=-1056899072 --->

[1]Microsoft.PowerBI.DataMovement.Pipeline.Diagnostics.GatewayPipelineWrapperException: Substituted: AdomdErrorResponseException:<pi>Microsoft.AnalysisServices.AdomdClient.AdomdErrorResponseException: The following system error occurred:  The name provided is not a properly formed account name.


I have tried to map trhe power bi username to a servername\username as what i would assume is a local user.


Can the Gateway be used on a non domain machine?

Re: Gateway non domain

@jamesdanuk hello, is not possible!


You must configure your gateway inside the domain which you want to connect. see the gateway like a 'bridge' not a VPN.


Because, the service you run , only to validate your credentials into domain to refresh your dataset.


may i clearly?
