Failed to connect to OLAP Source


We are currently facing an issue with the following scenario (BI 4.1, SP2).

- Webi report over Bex; user logs on via LDAP authentication and is SSOed to BW via STS

- For a single-user refreshing one report, all functionality works as described and we do not face any issues

- For a single-user refreshing many reports, or many users refreshing many reports, we get an error 'Failed to Connect to OLAP Source'.

- If we disable the SSO in the OLAP connection, and hard-code user and password, the problem appears to go away (however this is a business requirement as different users will have different data).

- Has anyone had this issue or similar issues with STS?
