Visual Studio - Cube Processing Error - The username or password is incorrect

Thu Phan 1 Reputation point

Hi Everyone, I thought I posted this before but somehow I cannot find that post.
So I'm totally new to SQL Server and I'm making my first cube.

When I tried to process the cube, I kept getting error message "The username or password is incorrect. Could anyone please help to solve this issue? I've already changed the impersonation information to a specific Windows username and password as below.

Thank you so much.

    Hi @Thu Phan ,

    This impersonation defines a Windows user which is used to access the Datasource; is important because you have to use Windows accounts for accessing the DB.

    If your server is joined to a domain, you will have to specify DOMAIN\Username in the User name textbox and the associated password in the Password textbox.
