Gateway not Configured Correctly - Workaround for SQL Server in Azure.

Unless you are working on premise – i.e., on the same network you have to specify the full domain name.  i.e., MyServer.MyDomain.xxx. when designing on PowerBI Desktop on your local machine.

 

If you are on premise – inside of a work environment then you only need to specify the server name (unless you have a complicated network) i.e., MyServer (Not fully qualified)

 

When you use a gateway the datasource expects an exact match to the server name but in the case mentioned above you have a mismatch:

 

MyServer.MyDomain.xxx vs. MyServer

 

This does not allow for the gateway to be recognized by the dataset.

 

A workaround is to add an entry to your local computer hosts file (where you work with PowerBI Desktop) with the ip address linking to the servername:

        xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx MyServer

 

Then in PowerBI Desktop point to the MyServer (not fully qualified) and reupload. Now it will be a perfect match in the dataset to the gateway datasource.
