A space have come into the TM1 application name in the TM1S.CFG file, and when registered with Microsoft Service, got a extra space in the name.
The PA Agent can not parse the space in the name, and therefor will not display all values.

Stop the TM1 instance.
Edit the tm1s.cfg file to correct value.
ServerName= proven techniques
should be changed to
Delete the TM1 instance in Cognos Configuration.
Check that the instance is gone – if not, you may need to delete it from a DOS command line.

sc delete ” proven_techniques”
in the elevated cmd prompt.
Now the windows service should be gone.
Go into Cognos Configuration again,
Add the new TM1 instance and enter a correct name “proven_techniques”
and point out the folder for the configuration file.
Start the service from inside Cognos Configuration.

Surf to PAW and check that the administration page is correct.
