[BO XI 3.0] - Connection to database "BusinessObjects credential mapping "


I have an strange issue regarding database connection. Users connect to database with database U and P. So in CMC we select "Enable Data Source Credentials for Business Objects Universes" and enter U and P to connect to database. In universe we choose "Use BusinessObjects credential mapping" and when we test it the server is responding. We create Deski report and we get the data from database. We publish this report to repository and when we want to refresh we get an error "SetPrompts failed - invalid username/password.....", then we convert this document in webi report and works fine

Any suggestions?


- MS windows server 2003 with SP2

- BO XI 3.0 with FP1 and FP2

- Oracle database 10gR2 (also test with 9i)
