    SQL server authentication error on tableau server

    Surendra Masupalli

      Hi folks,


      I need a small help regarding tableau server connection to a SQL Server database.


      In short, I've developed a tableau workbook with live connection to a SQL database and published to our tableau server. But when I login to tableau server and try to browse the report, I get the below error.

      It doesn't let me in even when I enter the login credentials. FYI...I'm using windows authentication for connecting to SQL Server authentication and the user id through which I've logged into tableau server has access to the database.


      I've also configured my tableau server to use Active directory, however I've not created a service account yet (it's using NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService which is a dummy one).


      Let me know if I'm missing anything pls?



      Thanks in advance!
