SYMPTOMS

The original released version of SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services does not include a way to include or exclude members of the computer Administrators group from the OLAP Administrators group. By default, the OLAP Administrators local Microsoft Windows security group controls Analysis Services administrative rights, and the OLAP Administrators group also includes the members of the Administrators group for the computer where Analysis Services is installed. However, starting with SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services build 8.00.909, you can use a new registry entry that is named
ExcludeMachineAdminFromOLAPAdmin
to change this behavior.
