MORE INFORMATION

Important notes about this service pack

  • We recommend that you back up your existing ProClarity Analytics Server 6.3 components before you apply this service pack.
  • ProClarity Analytics Server 6.3 Service Pack 2 supports Windows Server 2008. You can now deploy ProClarity Analytics Server 6.3 Service Pack 2 together with Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007 with Service Pack 2 on the same Windows Server 2008 server. However, some specific configurations are required to deploy ProClarity Analytics Server 6.3 Service Pack 2 on a Windows Server 2008 server.

    For more information about how to deploy ProClarity Analytics Server 6.3 Service Pack 2 on Windows Server 2008, see the "Installing ProClarity 6.3 SP2 on Microsoft Windows Server 2008" document at the following Web site:

Issues that are fixed by this service pack

  • When you set the Callouts property of a chart to Value, and then you specify a number value for the Decimal Places property of the chart axis, the actual number of decimal places in the callouts value is the number of the Decimal Places property plus 1.
  • When you slice a background hierarchy, you receive the following error message:
    Query Failed! (800F000A)
  • When you use ProClarity Web Standard to view a chart that was created in ProClarity Desktop Professional and published to ProClarity Analytics Server, the scale of the axis switches to use very large percentage numbers. This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
    • The chart contains a measure whose value is NULL.
    • The NULL measure is on an axis that uses the Auto Scaling feature.
  • Consider the following scenario. You create a calculated member by specifying the format string as percentage in ProClarity Desktop Professional. You create a chart by putting the calculated member on an axis. Additionally, you put another set that contains formatted values on the opposite axis. Then you publish the book that contains this chart to ProClarity Analytics Server. When you open the chart in ProClarity Web Standard, the axis for the calculated member and the callouts for the calculated member are displayed in the decimal formatting instead of in the percentage formatting.
  • After you install ProClarity Analytics Server on Windows Server 2008, ProClarity Analytics Server cannot access the Applicationhost.config file. The ReadMe file for this cumulative update contains instructions that describe how to configure ProClarity Analytics Server to run on Windows Server 2008.

Known issues in this service pack

  • ProClarity 6.3 SP2 supports PivotTable Services 8.0 and the SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services 9.0 OLE DB provider. However, ProClarity 6.3 SP2 does not support the SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services 10.0 OLE DB provider.

    Note PivotTable Services 8.0 is the OLE DB provider for SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services. PivotTable Services 8.0 is used to connect to an Analysis Services 2000 server.

    To work around this problem, use the SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services 9.0 OLE DB provider to connect to data cubes that use the SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services 10.0 OLE DB provider.
  • When you deploy ProClarity Analytics Server 6.3 SP2 and a 64-bit version of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 on the same server that is running Windows Server 2008, problems occur if the SharePoint Web site is created on port 80.

    Workaround To work around this problem, deploy ProClarity Analytics Server 6.3 in a distributed environment.
