Were you able to find any solution for this issue? we are running into the same issue.
We saw this same issue. For one of our Essbase environments it would work fine, and in the other it would crash as described here. We eventually narrowed it down to a difference in patch level - the "breaking" environment had patch 020 and the working environment had patch 013. To test this we then removed patch 020 and installed 013 on the "breaking" environment, and then everything worked as expected. This was in Tableau 10.3.3 and with 11.1.2. Would be interested to hear if the same is the case for you.
