Universe Connection fails - Unable to load catalog


Please can someone assist.

When I try and create a new connection.

DBD: A runtime exception has occurred (error getting list of catalogs)

When I try and refresh an existing structure, I get the following error:

Connection Error: Error loading cube XXX (catalog 0).

On Friday I had no issues, could create and refresh connections - obviously something  has changed, but I do not know what to even look for.

I am connection to SAP Netweaver7.

I have checked to see all my objects are active.

My licences are current

I have also run the queries in BEx, and Analyser and they are working.

I tried to run the BAPI BAPI_MDPROVIDER_GET_CUBES, but this caused a short dump

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

If your SAP user can't run BAPI_MDPROVIDER_GET_CUBES in BW transaction SE37 due to a program termination then you have an ABAP problem.

Sounds like the Authorizations for your SAP_USR have changed - you need to contact your BASIS to resolve this get-cubes problem.
