SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by the hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services, when the workload demand on the server is high, the server stops responding. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
Internal error: An unexpected exception occured.
When this issue occurs, a minidump file is generated in the SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services log folder.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because an error is generated when SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services processes data in a multithreaded manner. This results in a shared data structure that is incorrectly manipulated by multiple threads at the same time. Therefore, the shared data structure is corrupted, and an exception is generated.

Note The error message may be caused by other issues. We recommend that you contact Microsoft Customer Support Services to determine whether you are experiencing the problem that is described in this article.

Restart information

You do not have to restart the computer after you apply this hotfix. However, this hotfix stops and then restarts the Analysis Services service. If you configured the server for HTTP access, you must stop and then restart Internet Information Services (IIS) after the installation is complete. If you installed Analysis Services as a named instance, you must stop the SQL Server Browser service. You must do this because the Msmdredir.dll component of the SQL Server Browser service is updated during the installation of this hotfix.

Registry information

You do not have to change the registry.

Hotfix file information

The English version of this hotfix has the file attributes (or later file attributes) that are listed in the following table. The dates and times for these files are listed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). When you view the file information, it is converted to local time.
