BUG #: 11240 (Plato 7x)
SYMPTOMS
When you perform a Full Process for a cube that contains a private dimension, an incremental update is performed on the private dimension.
CAUSE
OLAP Manager unnecessarily performs an incremental update of the private dimensions when you select Full Process.
STATUS
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 the latest SQL Server OLAP Services Service Pack, see the following Microsoft Web site: For more information, contact your primary support provider.
MORE INFORMATION
This bug introduces a problem when a dimension member has been moved from one parent to another. For example:

Original Store Table
StoreIDRegionStoreName
1NorthEastStore1
2NorthEastStore2
3NorthEastStore3
4UnknownStore4
5SouthStore5
6SouthStore6
7UnknownStore7

Stores 4 and 7 are in the planning stages, but were created so that you can track design, site search, and other costs to the new location.

A cube is built that contains a Private Dimension by using the levels Region and StoreName.

After a location is found for Store 4, the location is assigned to the NorthEast region.

New Table Contents
StoreIDRegionStoreName
1NorthEastStore1
2NorthEastStore2
3NorthEastStore3
4NorthEastStore4
5SouthStore5
6SouthStore6
7UnknownStore7

When the cube is processed, after the changes are made in the source database, the OLAP Server returns the following error message:
OLAP Server Error: Processing error [Dimension Member Key is not unique] 'Store4 (Store Name)' ; Time:xx/xx/xxxx x:xx:xx PM
