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!

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      

SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services - Performance of Excel Pivot Tables

Hi, I've several cubes available for several users within my organization. I've the SQL Server 2005 and the Analysis Services running on the same machine but it has 30Gb of RAM, 8 processors and a quick enouth disk. The problems is that i've some automatic processes that "build" some excel reports and the users use pivot tables with olap connections to the cubes regularly. I've noticed that the excel "locks" when the user is drilling down the data and the server has only one processor (there are 8...) at 100%... Is there a way to make the analysis services use the maximum processing capacity that is available? The users are complaining about the slowness of the cubes... Thanks in advance Hugo

Adding a second node to a SQL 2005 Windows 2003 cluster - NewbieQ



I've been asked to replace the hardware for one of our SQL 2005 cluster nodes because of it's age etc etc..  I have evicted the node from the cluster and added in the new one but now have to add the SQL component to it.  I'm not familiar with this bit!  I have found this guide on Technet


Which seems to be exactly what I need but I have a few questions;

1.  Do I install SQL 2005 on the new node and then perform the steps in the guide above or will it be installed as part of the process following the steps above?

2. Will the current active node go offline or anything like that during the installation? 

3. Do I run the setup from the new node or the current active node?

Sorry for all the questions but I'm new the clustering side of things and dont want to mess this bit up

Thanks in advance

Depending on SQL2005 services on Windows 2003 Cluster



We have an SQL2005 cluster that is running ESRI ArcSDE. ESRI suggests that it depends on SQL Agent and this is how we have the resource dependency setup. We had a situation that we had to take SQL Agent offline and then abck online and this caused ArcSDE to stop as well. ArcSDE needs SQL to be active rather than SQL Agent and there could be other occasions that SQL Agent is in trouble and needs to be stopped/started as is used for our database backups. Is there a better dependency we could use or have we setup the dependency in the clustered services incorrectly?

SQL 2005/2008 on Windows Server 2008 R2 cluster - Service only starts when account is local admin


I have a single node Windows Server 2008 R2 cluster configured with SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Edition installed as a clustered instance.

I am having an issue where the SQL Server service will only start using TCP/IP when the service account is a member of the local admins group. To get SQL to install I had to add the sql server service account to the local admins group.

I have configured group policy with the permissions required for SQL Server 2008 and this is correctly applied to the node.

Errorlog shows the following...

Error: 26054, Severity: 16, State: 1.
2010-05-05 15:23:41.98 Server      Could not find any IP address that this SQL Server instance depends upon.  Make sure that the cluster service is running, that the dependency relationship between SQL Server and Network Name resources is correct, and that the IP addresses on which this SQL Server instance depends are available.  Error code: 0x5.

SQL 2005 in a Windows 2008 cluster: Problem getting SQL to start


I have windows 2008 cluster that was running sql 2005. We suffered a crash, lost the cluster disks, and had to restore them. We have the cluster back up and running but the SQL application in the cluster Services and Applications list is not longer available (or even in the list). I can't uninstall SQL and reinstall it, so I am at a loss as to what to do.

Is there anyway to recreate the SQL application in the cluster? or can I configure the clustered instance to be a standalone so I can uninstall?

Thanks for any help!
