There was a problem logging on. Please ensure you can access IBM Cognos Connection using the Gateway URI specified in IBM Cognos Configuration.
Ensure that the URL to cognos connection are part of local intranet zone in Internet Explorer for the user that start cognos planning.
Change to use cognosisapi.dll instead of cognos.cgi in cognos configuration. IIS on the Windows 2008 R2 server is maybe setup to only allow ISAPI instead of CGI.
