Bug #: 20000001 (Plato7x)
Bug #: 24772 (Content Maintenance)
When you try to process a partition in your Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services cube and the cube partition contains one or more virtual dimensions, the SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services service may restart unexpectedly.
One or more mini dump files (.mdmp) may be generated in the Analysis Services data folder. If you open the mini dump file in WinDbg.exe or in a similar debugging tool and you set the last stack to the error context (.ecxr), the call stack includes the following call details:
Note After the SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services service restarts, the processing operation finishes successfully if you reprocess the cube partition that caused the problem.
This problem occurs because of an invalid link between the virtual dimension and the dimension member property that serves as the source of the virtual dimension data. This invalid link may be a pointer to a deleted level in the dimension member property for a virtual dimension level.
