    Tableau Server error on SQL Data Connection refresh

    Matt Skinner

      Hi there,

      hope that someone can help with an error I am seeing on a published data connection.

      The error I am getting on refreshes is (from background tasks):


      "com.tableausoftware.nativeapi.dll.DataSourceException: Database error 0x80004005: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Invalid Instance()).]Invalid connection.

      Unable to connect to the server "X". Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database."


      Not been able to find any similar messages on these forums or on Google, but hope someone can point me in the right direction.

      The tableau server account has the necessary permissions on the database.


      Any help would be much appreciated,
