Connecting to MS OLAP in 2.2

Benjamin Kidder asked on December 11, 2015

I recently upgraded from version 2.1 to 2.2. I was able to connect to MS OLAP without error in version 2.1, but when I try in 2.2 I receive the error: “Invalid datasource or catalog. Please, read instruction in atroubleshooting guide.” I’ve confirmed that I can still connect to the msmdpump.dll via Excel, SQL Management Studio, and a variety of third party XMLA tools, and given that the 2.1 version still connects, I think there may be a bug in the 2.2 version.
I’ve attempted to connect with the XMLA connection tool from the toolbar, with a connection specified in a report.xml file on the server, and with the flexmonster.connectTo() function in javascript. I’ve tried all three with both the production copy on my webserver and in the trial (localhost) version.
However, I am able to connect to the AdventureWorks catalog at
Please let me know what I can do to further diagnose the connection issue.
