Granting access to a database (Analysis Services)

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 14, 2011    Points: 0   Category :


I need to grant access to the database (under Analysis Services).  I have a few questions.  Can I use an account that I created under the database engine (sql account) to have access to a database under the Analysis services?


I did some reading on MS below.  It seems to show only a domain account access under membership in Role.



Please advice.

Analysis Services 2008 R2 Deployment - very frequent database overwrites

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

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,

same server.

I am working on the node and I was able to create the datasource using
"Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle " and the test connection also
succedded but while creating the cubes using the cube wizard it throws
error saying " Connection to the data source Failed".

Any one could help me in this regards.

What are the ways to connect the oracle DB from MS Analysis Services.

Is this problem becoz of any permission settings, how do I give permissions for the users.


Regarding the Analysis services database connection.



        At present, I am facing a typical while processing a cube. In my package, I am processing all the dimensions and cubes through Analysis services task of the package. Now, I took the backup of the Current Analysis services database and restored it with other name and I changed the Analysis Services Connection in the package also. But, While running the pakcage, still the package is pointing to the old Analysis services databases only and it is updating all the dimensions and cubes of that database.

Please help me on this to proceed further.
