Unable to Connect to a Data Source Using a '.' as the Hostname/IP in BI Office 5.

In BI Office 5, if a data source is defined as '.', it may fail.

This is currently by design.

The following workarounds can be used to overcome this:

  1. Switch the datasource from . To localhost
  2. Switch the datasource from . To the hostname or IP address of the datasource
  3. In the pyramid admin network settings,  Enable "Use IP Resolution" to support the . datasource.
