SS Analysis Services ( SSAS ) DB schema comparison tool?

Does anyone know of a tool that compares SSAS databases? Not their data, just schema and maybe partition definitions.

SSAS databases comparison tool


There are a lot of tools for comparing “regular” SQL databases, but I couldn’t find any tool for comparing SSAS databases or cubes. Is there one or is it just no need in such a tool among BI community?

SQL Server 2005: Unearth the New Data Mining Features of Analysis Services 2005


In SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services you'll find new algorithms, enhancements to existing algorithms, and more than a dozen added visualizations to help you get a handle on your data relationships. Plus, enhancements to the Data Mining Extensions to SQL along with OLAP, DTS, and Reporting Services integration make it possible to create a new breed of intelligent apps with embedded data mining technology. Here the author explains it all.

OLAP: Build an OLAP Reporting App in ASP.NET Using SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services and Office XP


Many organizations analyze their business-critical data using Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technology. OLAP-based data mining provides a way to query multidimensional data sets and drill down into the data to find patterns. ASP.NET and the Microsoft Office Web Components (OWC) enable Web-based OLAP reporting. The OWC controls include PivotTable and Chart components that can be embedded in a Web page and scripted by programmers. In this article, the authors build a Web-based OLAP reporting app using ASP.NET, OWC, and SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to illustrate the process.

Web Services: Extend the ASP.NET WebMethod Framework by Adding XML Schema Validation


WebMethods make the development of XML Web Services easier by encapsulating a good deal of functionality, but there is still a lot of underlying XML processing that you have to be responsible for. For example, WebMethods do not validate messages against the implied schema. Because they are not validated, the response that's returned can result in unintended consequences. To address this, the authors extend the WebMethod framework by adding XML Schema validation through a custom SoapExtension class.

Metadata: Create a Database Schema Repository with Meta Data Services in SQL Server 2000


SQL Server 2000 Meta Data Services is a repository technology that stores and manages metadata for SQL Server. Instead of building database schemas over and over, Meta Data Services allows you to freeze an entire schema for use in other projects. You can also use these schemas for training, testing, or debugging. In this article, the authors will review the various components of Meta Data Services and show how it can be programmed using a Visual Basic client, XML, and XSLT. They will also show you how to manage and manipulate your metadata by generating a simple database schema using a SQL Server repository.

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!

Analysis Services Plugin using DMPluginWrapper with C#

I'm developing a desicion tree algorithm (CHAID) to be integrated as a plugin in SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services. It is almost done. The only thing that's missing in my implementation is the capability of testing the algorithm accuracy using any of the Mining Accuracy Chart. When I try to use these features, in my Visual Studio Business Intelligence Project, I get this error message: Query execution Failed Internal error: An unexpected exception occurred. COM error: COM error: DMPluginWrapper; Object reference not set to an instance of an object.. (Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Analysis Services 2008.) I think I'm not properly overriding a method or something like that. Since I have no documentation and no examples available, I'm not being able of detect where is the problem. Maybe some of you have experience developing plugin algorithms for SQL Server and have a clue of what I'm missing.   I know It's hard to help without seeing any piece of the source, but there're a bunch of files in the project. I've been reading and reading my source and I still don't know where the actual problem is.

modelling SCD2 hierarchy changes in analysis services 2005

its seems to me its really not possible to implement SCD2 changing hierarchy in analysis services such the hierarchy is properly displayed in excel. for instance if scd2 changes happen on leaf level then excel correctly shows the data but if they happen on branch level analysis services picks up one parent eg at time 1 hierarchy looks like this A->B at time 2 hierarchy is A->C when hierarchy is displayed in excel 2007 it shows      time       1       2 C    100   200   A  100    200   but this not a correct display of hierarchy changing over time the correct display is this      time       1       2 B    100   A  100 C            200   A          200

Today() Function including timezone causing issues in Analysis Services

I'm using Reporting Services 2008 R2 connecting to Analysis Services. I've used this same code without issues before (pre R2), just wondering whether it is an RS, AS, Server or some other issue entirely. I have a report with a datetime parameter @vdtmDate (I use this so the user has the date picker instead of a drop down list of dates) with default =DateAdd(DateInterval.Day, -1, Today()) Then in the MDX for the dataset, I use the following to build the filter. SET [Today] as STRTOSET('[Calendar].[Reporting Week].[Day].&[' + VBA.FORMAT(VBA.CDATE(@vdtmDate),'yyyyMMdd') + ']') The issue I'm having is when the report runs with the default parameters, the value passed to Analysis Services includes the timezone which causes the query to process for the previous day to that selected. When the user runs the report manually (ie just pressing the view report button straight after the initial report load) the date passes without the timezone and returns the correct information. Example, running the report today (3rd September), the default parameter passes the value (info from profiler)         <Parameter>           <Name>vdtmDate</Name>           <Value xsi:type="xsd:dateTime">2010-09-02T00:00:00+
