This article describes how to set up application names in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services.
On computers that are running Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services, you can set up application names. With application names, you can connect to Analysis Services by using an alias name. It is useful to set up application names in disaster-recovery situations when a standby server has the same analysis data as the production server. When you promote the standby server to production server, you move the alias name to the standby server in the Domain Name System (DNS). In this scenario, clients are then redirected to the standby server.
To set up SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to use application names, follow these steps.
Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
