SYMPTOMS

If a drillthrough request is sent to Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services for a cube or a virtual cube during a Refresh Data processing operation, a fatal error may occur on the Analysis Services server and it may shut down. If the drillthrough request is issued when no processing operations are occurring, it is successful.

CAUSE

When a drillthrough is requested, the OLAP provider submits a separate drillthrough request to the server for each partition in a cube. When the Analysis Services server receives the drillthrough request, it generates the necessary SQL statement for the drillthrough, passes the statement to the relational data source, and then returns the results to the client. During a Refresh Data processing operation on a cube, Analysis Services makes copies of the existing partitions in a cube and stores data in the partition copies. At commit time, Analysis Services renames the copied partitions and deletes the old partitions. If a drillthrough request is generated by a client when the new partitions are being renamed, the client may detect both the new partition and the old partition and generate a drillthrough request for each partition. If the old partition is deleted after the drillthrough request is received but before the SQL statement is generated, Analysis Services tries to access the deleted partition to generate the SQL statement and this problem occurs.
