Alias name for SSAS

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi, Is it possible to create an alias name for an SSAS instance?

So that, instead of using the actual name of this SSAS instance, we could use the alias name to connect???
I know it is possible for SQL Server database engine, but I am not sure how to do the same for SSAS.
I am not able to find any resource on the net for this.

Please let me know if I am not clear.

Creating a user friendly alias for the website path


 Hello mates,

I am hosting my ASP.NET application on a Windows 2003 Server.

To browse to my application one has to type the path :http://serverName/applicationName

I want users to only type  applicationName on the web adress area.I believe there is something to do with alias and CNAME on DNS records that can adress this.

Any help on how to go about doing this will be highly appreciated.

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.

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

Replication Wizard doesn't like SQL Server Alias

I tried creating a new replication but I get an error that says, "SQL Server replication requires the actual sever name to make the connection to the server. Connections through a server alias, IP address, or any other alternate name are not supported. Specifiy the actual server name, 'SomeMachineNumber'." I don't get this. Why can't I use an alias? I googled and found few articles but not sure if I understand what others are talking about. Here is how I have things set up and I'm hoping someone can explain to me what is happening. On my machine, I have the following alias set up. Alias Name: SQLDEV, Port No: 2433, Protocol: TCP/IP, Server: SomeMachineNumber In Mgmt Studio, I can connect to the server SomeMachineNumber by using the alias SQLDEV. However, if I try to create a new publication on SQLDEV, I get the above error. Now, just for the heck of it, I created another alias using the same properties as above except, I named the alias the same as the server, "SomeMachineNumber". I connect to the server in Mgmt Studio using the new alias, and now I am able to create the new publication. Does this make sense? Am I not still using an alias in the second example? Why does the replication seemingly like the alias "SomeMachineNumber", but not "SQLDEV"?

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!!

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?
