TFS 2013 Excel reports issue.

Mar 26, 2014 at 6:24 PM
Hi There,

We have recently installed & Configured TFS-2013

And when accessing excel reports we are facing below issue.
"Errors in OLE DB provider.Could not connect to the redirector.Ensure that the SQLBrowser service is running on the"Serever name" server"

Everything was fine with Analysis services.We even configured the users oin TFS_Datawarehouse Reader role.

Any help on this on issue is really appreciated.

  • Have you verified that all services are started and running, especially the SQL Server Browser service?
  • Are all the network connections / ports configured? To communicate with the SQL Server Browser service on a server behind a firewall you need to open UDP port 1434, in addition to the TCP port used by SQL Server.
Please refer to the below link for common connectivity problems and resolutions for the same http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc917670.aspx. It is dated, but the troubleshooting concepts are still relevant.
