SYMPTOMS

When you use the x64-based version of Microsoft Office 2010 to create a local cube by using the SQL Server 2008 ADOMD.NET data provider, you receive the following error message:

Create Session: Failed to initialize provider object (IGNORABLE).

Note This issue does not occur in the 2007 Microsoft Office system or in the x86-based version of Office 2010.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the ADOMD.NET data provider does not close the connection to the local cube. This behavior blocks any later connections.

RESOLUTION

The fix for this issue was first released in Cumulative Update 3 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1. For more information about this cumulative update package, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
971491 Cumulative update package 3 for SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1
Note Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 fix release. Microsoft recommends that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains this hotfix. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
970365 The SQL Server 2008 builds that were released after SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 was released
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 hotfixes are created for specific SQL Server service packs. You must apply a SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 hotfix to an installation of SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1. By default, any hotfix that is provided in a SQL Server service pack is included in the next SQL Server service pack.

WORKAROUND

To work around this issue, use one of the following methods:
  • Open only one connection, and then reuse the connection for all operations in a cube.
  • Open multiple connections, and then close all the connections immediately after use. Closing the connections immediately after use is necessary because, when a connection is closed, the other connections are invalid and any new connections cannot be opened.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
