I requested access to use the excel 2005 data mining addin from our IT group (specifically being able to connect to ana instance of analysis services and have the addin create models on the server. This is the message my IT group sent me
The 2005 data mining add in requires SSAS administrative privileges to install and operate. Since there is no separate SSAS administrative role outside of sysadmin for the instance, the IT policy is not to grant sysadmin roles to end users.
Can anyone say if this is typical at other organizations?
