I have searched and read, tried every combination, and still can not make this work. I have attached screen shots of trying to connect the BI...I have virtually no experience and am totally confused about the settings. Please help : )

Are you sure you're connecting to SAP Business Intelligence platform ?
HANA server or Launchpad are not the same thing.
Also, verify that the URL is correct as /sap/biprws is not a default URL.
Also, try to login as Enterprise user first, not using sap authentication.

Hi Laura,

First of all I see you use port 6405 which is the default port, but it might be different in your BI platform. You can check with BO administrator.

I recommend you to check Lumira trace logs, so you can see what the issue is in the log files. You can find log files in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Temp\sapvi\logs drive. More info: Did you know… Enable Tracing in Lumira Desktop?

Thank you SO much Tuncay! I am checking with csuchico to see if the number is different. I found the logs but can't make hide nor hair of them : ) Hopefully the administrator will be able to work through that too. Thank you so much for your quick and experienced reply!
