1186477 - Error: "Incorrect log on parameters" for published Crystal Reports


A report runs successfully in Crystal Reports but when published to BusinessObjects Enterprise or Crystal Reports Server, it fails to run on the server and the following error message appears:
"The request could not be submitted for background processing. Unable to connect: incorrect log on parameters".
The report connects to its data source using an ODBC connection, and the Data Source Name (DSN) is configured with SQL Authentication specified. The DSN has been properly configured and tested on the server, and you have verified that the logon parameters are entered properly in the object properties on the server.
You notice the Enterprise server using a system account to access the data source (while monitoring from the database side).
