Single Sign-On (SSO) Account Locks When User Attempts To Run Financial Reporting (FR) Report Which References Members Of An Essbase Database To Which They Have No Access, And An Error Appears: "Connection could not be established []" (Doc ID 2209180.1)

Hyperion BI+ - Version 11.1.2.4.000 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

You've configured EPM to use SSO via Microsoft Active Directory (MSAD). If a user runs an FR report that retrieves certain dimensions/members from an Essbase hierarchy, but they do not have access to those areas of the database, an error appears: "Connection could not be established []". This error occurs in conjunction with several attempts by the system to establish the ultimately unsuccessful connection, which results in the user's account getting locked out.
