Analysis Services 2008 R2 Deployment - very frequent database overwrites

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 
When regularly deploying an Analysis Services project from Visual Studio / BIDS to Analysis Services 2008 R2, the database must frequently be overwritten - on almost any change. For example, after a successful deploy and process, a seemingly minor change is made (e.g. changing the FormatString property for an existing Measure, or Arrange Tables in the Data Source View), and the next deploy and process attempt triggers the message: The 'ZZZ' database on 'ZZZ' has changed since the last time the project was deployed. If you proceed with deployment, the database will be overwritten. Would you like to continue? With earlier versions of SQL, this only occurred rarely, e.g. when deploying to a stale server. The impact is that testing almost any change requires a complete re-process of the database. Is anyone else striking this issue?  Thanks Mike

Help!!!! Permission issue with Analysis Services on Windows 2008 R2

  
Hi I'm with a project using Sql Server 2008 on Windows Server 2008 R2. It seems I can not connect to Analysis Services server with SA acount but only with Windows Authentication (The 'Authentication' option is diabled). And when I connect to Analysis Services with my windows acount , I do not have the permission to either create a database (ERROR:Either '***' user does not have the permission to create a new object, or the object does not exist) or grant server privilege to my windows account (ERROR: Only an administrator can make changes to server properties). Also, I failed to remote connect to Analysis Services on Server with my windows account (But I can remote connect to Database engine). Any idea?  Thanks!

SP2010 + Reporting 2008 R2 + Analysis Services 2008 R2

  
I want to create a solution based on sp2010 in which the users can create their own reports with Report Builder and have an Analysis Services cube as the data source I did is the following : i have activated the Site collection features for reporting, i have created a data source which is the cube, i've created the model and also added the reporting document types to a document library and now i am ready to create reports The problems comes when i want to create this from a location outside the server. It doesn't work and gives me the following error : Semantic query execution failed.  (rsSemanticQueryEngineError) ---------------------------- Query execution failed for dataset 'DataSet1'. (rsErrorExecutingCommand) ---------------------------- An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted) The location from where i want to access is a computer from another domain but i log in with a SP2010 user and also pertaining to the SP2010 domain. This user has Member Site rights for the Report Model, dataset, report. DataSet1 is the default name assigned by the Report Builder. The issues appears if I define the dataset before the report or during the report creation with the Report Builder. The authentication for the data source is windows authentication, the permissions for the model are inherited from the site, and the dataset credentials are set to Use

Migration / Export of Analysis Services 2000 database without affecting the source database

  
Hi! I´m am currently initating a migration of a 300GB Analysis Services database containing approx 50+ cubes. My issue is that the database is somewhat critical, and I just want to get a couple of answers and feedback before i press Go. My plan is to use the "Analysis Services Migration Wizard" to migrate the database to a new (test environment) server. Q1: I just want to migrate the structure, the metadata, is this what the migration wizard does? I don´t have 300GB disk space at the test server to accomodate all the data. We will start off with just a subset Q2: Since the data is 300GB+, it might take a very long time using the migration wizard. If that is the case, can I make a copy of the database in analysis manager 2000 and paste it with a different name, and the migrate this, empty, database? Would you see any trouble with this approach? Any other thoughts on this, somewhat massive, migration project? How would you do it? The most important this is that the old database cannot be touched, since this would mean a reprocess of 300GB data, on a server from the nineties... Cheers,

Cannot start Analysis Services 2008 service

  
Hi! I have Sql Server 2008 R2 and Analysis Services 2008. I could use it without problems for few days, but today, when I stop analysis service with Sql Server Configuration Manager and tried to start it again, it gives me error message: "The request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion. Consult the event log or other applicable error logs for details". The msmdsrv.log file doesnt have any entries related to this error. Both Sql Server and AS are installed on my local machine and log on as LocalSystem. My system is XP sp3 professional.

SQL 2008 Reporting Services Report Parameter and Analysis Services issue after upgrade

  
I have upgraded my SQL 2000 database and analysis server and SQL 2005 reporting services server to a new instance of SQL 2008 running database engine, analysis services and reporting services.

The analysis services database migrated successfully and I have got the database into a state where it processes fine but I am having the following problems.

- My Reports show in reporting services but the drop down list parameters are all empty.
If I change the parameter in report builder to use the display name instead of the uniquename then the drop down list populates and works until I select a value that contains a space character and then it reports a problem with the dataset used by the report.

Query for the dataset used to populate my parameter.
with member [Measures].[GroupUniqueName] as '[Site].CurrentMember.UniqueName' member [Measures].[GroupDisplayName] as'[Site].CurrentMember.Name' select { [Measures].[GroupUniqueName], [Measures].[GroupDisplayName] } on columns, { [Site].[Group].members } on rows FROM [Invoice Reporting]

Query used by the report, filtering on the selected parameter value from the drop

Encryption and FIPS Compliance of Analysis Services 2008

  

We have SQL Server succesfully set up for FIPS Compliance, But require to setup the same Compliance for the Encryption of Data in Analysis services 2008 enterprise on the same Win 2008 server.

If we browse to the SAS Data Folder for our Project on the Fips Compliant  Instance We can view the Data Files and the Data is Visible in Plain Text. Depite the security setting being set to DataProtectMode 1 (Encryption).

So my Questions:

1. Is Analysis Services 2008 enterprise Fips Compliant ?

2. if it is How do we set it up

3. how do we prove to security Auditors that it is Set up and Working in Compliant Mode.

We have done Exaustive Searches of msdn Google blogs, sql-cat etc and found no relevent articles to Answer these specific Questions and are reluctant to Go to Chargeable support until we have exausted other available avenues.


SQL Server 2008 R2 \ Analysis Services Purchasing

  
If a person wants to experience with Analysis Services (not as a trial) for his personal use, does it mean that the cheapest way is to purchase a "SQL Server Standard" license for $898?

http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/2008/en/us/pricing.aspx

Another option is ($2,607.55):

http://store.microsoft.com/microsoft/SQL-Server-2008-R2-Standard-Edition-32-bit-10-Client-Access-Licenses-/product/99B2882D

Is there a way to get a cheaper version of Analysis Services + SQL Server (maybe along with free versions such as "SQL Server Compact" and "SQL Server Express")?

Thanks!

Analysis Services 2008 R2 Installation Failure

  

Hello!

 

I'm trying to install SQL Server 2008 R2 x86 Evaluation Edition on my Windows XP SP3 32bit computer (all current updates to the OS are installed) but I get an error when I install Analysis Services.

Other features install successfully. I have only a problem with Analysis Services. To be more specific:

When installation is running on "ASConfigAction_install_postmsi_Cpu32" I get the error message: "The Service could not be started. Reason: Service 'MSSQLServerOLAPService' start request failed." Configuration error code: 0xD448CDD2

The installer then continues, but eventually crashes. In the end it says that it managed to install everything but Analysis Services.

I used default instance, default installation folders, windows authentication. Didn't change anything installer suggested. Added myself to AS administrators.

I disabled firewall and antivirus prior to running setup. I'm an administrator user (not part of any domain).

I used NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM for Analysis Service. NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE for SQL Server Engine.

After installation if I try to run AS Service from SQL Server Configuration Manager I get the following error:

"The request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion. Consult the event log or other applicable logs for details.&qu

SQL Server 2008 R2 Analysis Services - Syncronization Speed Issues

  

We are experiencing a severe performance issue when syncronizing cubes using R2. We have 2 sets of machines that we are experiencing varied performance and speed when syncronizing cubes.

Test Server Pair 1
---------------------------------- 
Dell R710, 72GB Ram, 2 drives in Raid 1 (OS), 4 drives in Raid 10 (Cube and DB Storage) - This is the source server
Dell R900, 256GB Ram, 2 Drives in Raid 1 (OS), 3 Drives in Raid 5 (Cubes & Storage) - Server recieving sync updates

These servers are running Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise and SQL Server 2008 SP1 CU9 Enterprise (64bit). The performance of the cube syncronization is slow but manageable.

Test Server Pair 2
---------------------------------- 
Dell R710, 96GB Ram, 2 drives in Raid 1 (OS), 4 drives in Raid 10 (Cube and DB Storage) - This is the source server
Dell R910, 256GB Ram, 2 Drives in Raid 1 (OS), 14 Drives in Raid 10 (Cubes & Storage) - Server recieving sync updates

These servers are running Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise and SQL Server 2008 R2 CU2 Enterprise (64bit). This pair of servers running SQL 2008 R2 syncronize very slowly.  The process about 70-80 percent slower than the first pair. Our cubes that we syncronize are very large in size (some are 500-800GB in size) and for that reason con

Analysis Services 2008 e Excel pivot table: different filters for each column

  
Hello,

I have to create a report in excel 2010 based on a  analysis services 2008 cube.

I created a pivot table that contains four columns containing the elements of a hierarchy. My problem is that each column should be filtered with different values of the same field.

For example: given a hierarchy that describes me a set of products, I have to filter the product for customer  1 and 3, Product B for  customer 2 and the product C for the customer 3.

I think this thing is not possible in Excel (right?)

So I decided to use a mdx script to filter each product 

I tried so (for example, product A):
scope (descendants([Products].[products].[liv0].&[A], 1, leaves));
[Measures].Quantity = sum({[Customer].[Code].&[01], [Customer].[Code].&[03]}, [Measures].quantity);
end scope;



I still get an error of infinite recursion. How can I solve my problem? Is there a better system than what I am following?
