      You didnt answer the first question of when exactly are you getting this error message - during direct logon to BEx or using transaction RRMX. Anyways, I assume both are giving the error.

      Check how the SAP logon pad is configured to access the BW server currently.

      In our case the problem was resolved by using the server machine name instead of the IP address to logon to the BW server.

      If you are currently using the IP address in the logon pad then change it to the server machine name instead.

      Also, make this entry in your hosts file (windows>system32>drivers>etc>hosts) add an entry like:

      <IP Address> <bw_server_machine_name>

      save the file, reboot the system and then try logging onto BEx again.

      If it still does not work - send me screenshots of the logon pad configuration you have for the BW server.

      Hope this helps,
