BUG #: 9065 (SQLBUG_70)
When you apply Microsoft SQL Server OLAP Services Service Pack 2 (SP2), and you then run an Archive/Restore on an OLAP database, the permissions for the temp system folder change.
The Microsoft OLAP Services 7.0 SP2 Archive/Restore Add-In (Msmdarch.exe) changes the permissions on the temp folder. The permissions applied on the root of the temp directory are "inherited" so any future files that are opened or created under this folder also inherit the Read Only permissions of the object.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server OLAP Services version 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 3 for Microsoft SQL Server OLAP Services version 7.0. For information about how to download and install SQL Server 7.0 OLAP Services Service Pack 3, see the following Microsoft Web site: For more information, contact your primary support provider.
