Dashboard can't connect to data when ran on BI Platform

When I run any dashboard from the BI Platform I get this error: "Could not connect to BusinessObjects server; Check your network connection. (XLS 000003) The object with ID <ID> does not exist in the CMS or you do not have the right to access it."

The dashboard runs fine if the person signed on is in the Administrator group, but fails with any ID not in this role. I can open the Dashboard in the design tool with a non administrator ID and it runs fine there. The dashboards use BEx Queries through the Query Builder.

We have a fresh install of BOE 4.2 SP3. I've imported object from our old 4.1 environment with LCM. I thought maybe the promotion was not working right, but I created a brand new dashboard in the 4.2 environment and it behaves the same way.

SAP note 2222746 seemed promising, but after applying the resolution it didn't help. It almost appears there is some service or object needed that Administrator group has access to but Everyone group does not.

This ended up being a bug in the installation for 4.2 SP3. If I understood correctly SAP will provide a fix for this. We had to open the CMS in console mode and run some commands that granted permissions to 'XLQureies'.

We have identical situation. Could you share the commands for granting permissions to XLQueries?
