Cause

When FlexNet Report Designer is installed on a server other than the database server running the content store database, Microsoft SQL Server Native Client must be installed on the server hosting FlexNet Report Designer.

Resolution

Install SQL native client on the cognos server. Installation instructions are available online, and you can start from

Running 2017 R3.. with ContentStore and FNMP Dashboard on same server.  Still have error

Could you please check the connection details are correct for the mentioned datasource: FNMP-DW-DS on Cognos. To check this, on the Cognos UI if you are logged in as Analytics Administrator:

-Click on the Manage icon 'click mark icon' around the bottom left side of the navigation bar.

-Then navigate to Administration Console>Configuration>Data Source Connections.

-Notice the FNMP-DW-DS group listed

-Click on the above group and then click on the ‘More’ link under Actions on the right side of the page.

-Then navigate to Set Properties>Connection.

-Next to the ‘Connection String’ field, click on the pencil icon ‘Edit the connection string’.

-Check both the ‘Native’ and ‘JDBC’ tabs to make sure connection details there are correct. Also you could perform Test connection there to see which one is failing.

Thanks.
