InitCatalog:Cannot connect to the server



We have installed BPC 7.0 in 2-server architecture.

First server is VM - Windows 2003 32 bit, it contains


- Reporting Services

- Integration Services

Second server is physical. Windows 2003 64 bit, it contains

- SQL Server 2005

- OLAP Server 2005

We have installed also a separate client: admin and office tools.

During opening Excel 2007 (provider Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0 is installed on first server) we got error:

InitCatalog:Cannot connect to the server 'XXXXX'. The server is either not started or too busy.

After clicking the OK button in the error message, I was further notified that Account dimension member cannot be downloaded and so on.

It looks like similar problem as in this thread: initcatalogcannot-connect-to-the-server-'xxxxx'

But it wasn;t solved.

We got also the same error during processing cubes/dimensions from BPC Administrator.

Can anybody help us solving this problem?

Thanks in advance.
