On-premise gateway configuration issue



So we're trying to configure an on-premise gateway to automate dataset refreshes, but we're having trouble getting it to work.


We have been able to register the gateway with the service, getting in the data sources, and makign the report recognize them alright. But, when we try to select it as the gateway for the scheduled refresh, the next error appears:


Failed to use the selected gateway. Please make sure the gateway is up and running and try again.
Please try again later or contact support. If you contact support, please provide these details.

Could it be because we're behind a PAC-configured corporate proxy? Is that any different from how the documentation explains it?
Any suggestions we could try, are much appreciated!

Re: On-premise gateway configuration issue

Hi @evillarreal,

Before I installed the Enterprise Gateway, I had hostname set for around 10 data source connections to the same database.  On creating the enterprise gateway, I configured that data source with, so clearly I had to amend it in the PowerBI desktop to match so that it would give me the enterprise gateway as an option after republishing.  On doing that, it appears I missed the last one (because I thought the last two were both just locally added tables) and so it was just hostname.  


The good news is, after spotting that and fixing it, it is now working.  The clue that led me to it was under Data Source Credentials (before selecting the Enterprise Gateway) it had two server entries (one for hostname and one for which caused me to go and double check my data sources (I'd previously assumed it was just left over from before).


Hopefully me admitting my stupidity will help someone else at some point Smiley Wink 

Here is a similar thread about same issue, in which a workaround is mentioned. Could you go to check if it helps in your scenario.


In addition, here is also a similar thread, which mentions that if your dataset contains any unsupported datasource will also cause this issue. Smiley Happy

Re: On-premise gateway configuration issue

Thanks, we've managed to fix it with the original dataset, but now we´re having an issue with yet another dataset.


This time we've checked all the required datasources are supported and configured in the gateway, but it´s still giving us the same error. I´ll check your suggestions and see if we can make it work with these!
