I just deployed my cube and I am getting an error on my browser reading

Cannot create a connection to data source.

I can't figure this one out. When I was designing my  report the query builder could see the cube no problems.

Might be your Login has expired.
Try resetting it and then delete the prior connection and create a new connection to the same server.
This should resolve your problem.

it seems like a rights issue

you have to setup the data source in the properties tab of your report.there you select A Custom Data Source and Credentials storedsecurely in the report server

or use windows authentication with user domain
