SharePoint's Sandbox: Developing, Deploying and Monitoring Sandboxed Solutions in SharePoint 2010


The challenge in SharePoint development has always been the balance between creating and deploying solutions that you can trust not to damage or impair a SharePoint farm. A new feature in SharePoint 2010, called Sandboxed Solutions, enables farm administrators to feel comfortable that the SharePoint farm is safe, gives site collection administrators the authority to manage applications in their site collection, and provides developers with the flexibility to create solutions they know will be deployed in a safe and rapid manner.

C++ Q&A: Performance Monitoring, Managed Extensions, and Lock Toolbars


In the June 2004 issue of MSDN®Magazine, I described a class called ShowTime that you can use to do simple performance monitoring for your app. ShowTime uses its constructor/destructor to record the start/stop times of its existence so you can instantiate it in a block of code like so: { ShowTime st(_T("Total time is:")); // some lengthy operation } .

Kerberos between MOSS 2007 and SSAS 2005


I realize this is probably going to be one of those vague questions that I am not going to get much help on here, but I thought I'd give this a shot before we go the MS Incident route on monday.

We have tried to setup Kerberos between MOSS 2007 AND SSAS 2005 to no avail.  We have been through the knowledge base articles outlining the setup multiple times with all the experts on MOSS and Security here where I work.  We've used other materials we have on kerberos here.  But the end result is that the double hop is not happening.  We are trying to connect three ways: excel services, ssrs 2005 in integrated mode, and Sharepoint KPI's (using analysis services).  In every case the connection is not happening.

Other details are that the ssrs integrated mode seems to be setup right because I do get a report (albiet all it has is a connection error message).  Excel services works fine if I use the unattended service account, but when I switch the odc file to windows (should cause kerberos to kick in) it fails.  When I try to add a kpi to the kpi list it can't retrieve a list of kpi's from ssas.

In all cases I am the user trying to perform these operations, and I have total access to the cube -- I'm the developer.  I have no problems connecting to the cube directly through excel, so the security at that end passes t

SSAS logistic regression vs. vanilla logistic regression

I recently ran the same data set through the SSAS logistic regression (Neural network - Hidden layer disabled) as well as a vanilla logistic regression procedure. I am aware that different processes are followed in order to obtain the resulting co-efficients, however, has anyone got further information as to how close the results of the SSAS logistic regression equation are in comparison to logistic regression equations contained in other statistical packages such as SAS or SPSS? I do understand that the respective procedures are dependant on the quality of the data that they are applied to. I assume that the SSAS logistic regression may perform more favourably on one dataset in comparison to a vanilla logistic regression and vice versa. I am aware of the following post however it does not go into much detail concerning the results of the comparison. http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sqldatamining/thread/4f381c6b-2471-4d4c-a022-316a1073184d Further info would certainly be appreciated.

how to move SSAS applications between windows servers

Hi All, We have separate windows servers hosting production and development environments.  Each environment consists of MS SQL Server and SSAS, studios, etc.  What would be the best way to move MS SQL Server databases and SSAS objects from one server to another?  I have been looking for some import/export applications but have not been able to find anything.

Query Performance & Overall Design - SSAS MDX WCF

Hi All, We have a Cube which is to be queried by the Online system , using WCF service. Peroformance of the queries running on the Cube is not really very good , as we have to calculate various percentile (which are all calculated members) on the cube, this howver works well within limits of 5-6 secs for small sample size. But this goes beyond the threshold of 30 secs when the record counts increases. What we have is our SSAS Cubes , and we have WCF Service querying the Cube using ADOMD.NET. This may not be one of the best way to achieve this requirement , but we are kind of completed with development and it may not be feasible to work on another approach, what we are looking for is optimize this design and make it work with in expected time limits of 5-8 secs. Kindly let me know, if i am not clear or if you need any more info to suggest something ! Thanks a lot for your help !   Kindly

Determining the status os the Batch job that process SSAS Cubes

Hi All, I have a cube and that is processed through a batch job. The problem I am facing is there are many packages which are calling this Batch job to process the cube. Is there a way to determine the state of the job before the packages call this batch job to process the cube. And in which database can I find all the information about the jobs on the server. Thanks for your help. Vineeshvineesh1701

Getting filtered data from Role based SSAS security

Hi everyone,I've got a heap of reports that are based on various SSAS cubes. I have roles defined on these cubes that restrict data via certain dimensions. Question is, will these restrictions filter through to the report...ie, if I have a sales person restricted in the SSAS cube to only see sales against their territory (restricted in the Territory dimension), when they run the report will it filter the result based on their SSAS credentials and only show the data they have access to (even though the SSRS report has no direct filters or parameters applied)?Cheers for any help!!

Performance monitoring and baselining

Hello, While collecting the baseline data through perfmon I had come across few basic doubts in my mind which I need to clarify with your help. Suppose we have lot of RAM available and we launch an application (say a huge SSRS report with 5 million records). This takes up all the RAM and we see a steep decline in the perfmon chart. Once this report is generated , we notice a rise in the available memory. Does this means, the memory is released automatically by the report server? What is the concept behind this? Can we forcefully make SQL Server (or report server) to release the acquired memory at any point of time? Regards.

Shared dataset in SSRS 2008 R2 running on SSAS 2005

I am trying to create a report in SSRS 2008 R2 using SSAS 2005 as a datasource. My dataset has a date parameter. When I create an embedded dataset in my report everything works fine, but when I create a shared dataset with the exact same mdx query, I get the following error: An error occurred during local report processing. The definition of the report 'xxxx' is invalid. The Value expression for the report parameter 'DateCalendarHierarchy' contains an error: [BC30034] Bracketed identifier is missing closing ']'. Does anybody have any ideas? Is this a bug? Thanks, Louis

AdomdDataAdapter.Fill returns memory error when querying an SSAS Cube(2008)

For certain SQL's I will get the following error when calling the Fill method on an AdomdDataAdapter object. "Memory error: While attempting to store a string, a string was found that was larger than the page size selected. The operation cannot be completed."   Snippet of Code: DataSet ds1 = new DataSet(); AdomdCommand acmd1 = cn1.CreateCommand(); acmd1.CommandText = "SELECT ..."; AdomdDataAdapter ad1 = new AdomdDataAdapter(acmd1); ad1.Fill(ds1);   Now when we run this query in Ms Sql Studio we don't get any errors but the query returns 1 row with over 40,000 columns. I'm guessing the # of columns might be an issue but not sure.   When doing a Google search it appears that this problem was found in the 2005 and fixed in that version. Have any of you come across this problem?
