BI Semantic Model connection issue against a PowerPivot excel RRS feed

  • Question

  • Below is the BI Semantic model connection error from the windows server log. I deployed the Powerpivot excel to the Sharepoint powerpivot gallery. In the SP 2010, when I create a new BI Semantic model connection on Power Pivot excel, I m getting the following error. I have spent lot of time debugging the issue with no luck.

    My ultimate goal is to create a power view report based on the semantic model connection on PowerPivot excel. Please advice.

    EXCEPTION: Microsoft.AnalysisServices.OperationException:
    The following system error occurred:  Logon failure: unknown user name or
    bad password.        at
