I changed our Domain Controller over the weekend and since I have done this, no one is able to refresh various sales reports we have which run via OLAP cubes out of SQL Analysis Server 2000.
The sales reports are run in Excel and connect to a SQL database on another server in our environment (on the same domain as the domain controller, but nothing on this machine changed). The actual excel files sit on the new domain controller (but permissions were copied so are the same as before).
When I try to refresh the sales reports, which obviously tries to connect to the sql 2000 server i get the following error within MS Excel 2003:
"The following system error occurred: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it."
Then I get:
"Errors in the OLE DB Provider. An error occured while loading the connection dialog box component for prompting."
The strange thing is, the sales report can be refreshed if you are a user in the Domain admins group or Local Admins group. For everyone else, the connection is blocked and you can no longer refresh the sales reports. Obviously I dont want to give every user admin access to fix this problem, but I am at a loss as to why this is suddenly happening?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
