The standard procedure to configure (KB 921116) the Cube Building Services (Analysis Services 2005) for Project Server is to copy the Msmdrep.mdb file on a network share.
¾ Get a backup of a SQL 2000 AS Repository database (you can use the migration wizard within AS 2000 to create one) or download the one below.
¾ Create a database in SQL Server 2005 and call it AS2000_Repository.
¾ Restore the database backup found in the link below to the AS2000_Repository database
¾ Locate the msmdsrv.ini file in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.#\OLAP\Config (NOTE: MSSQL.# is the folder in which SQL Analysis Services 2005 files are installed)
¾ Modify the <DSO> section of the msmdsrv.ini to (NOTE: Each XML item should be on a single line):
<DSO><RemoteRepositoryConnectionString>Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source=SERVERNAME;Initial Catalog=AS2000_Repository;</RemoteRepositoryConnectionString><RepositoryConnectionString>Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source=SERVERNAME;Initial Catalog=AS2000_Repository;</RepositoryConnectionString><RemoteLocksDirectory/><LocksDirectory/></DSO>
En partant d’un serveur from scratch il faut vraiment le vouloir pour créer un Cube. Pré-requis : Installer
thank you so much christophe you saved my life.
I cannot understand a second how such a major feature as the setup of the OLAP cube cannot work without having to dig for a file on the NET
Thank you for my life as well Chris!
3 days of searching and I was ready to uninstall MS SQL 2005 from my Projects Server 2003SP3/WSS 2.0 SP2 - Portal Server 2.0 SP2 Server.
Cube built successfully! La belle que voilà...
