BUG #: 11551 (plato7x)
BUG #: 11553 (plato7x)
When querying an Analysis Server from a client that is using a different locale than that of the server, performance of the query may be slower than when the client and server are using the same locale.
The locale of the computer where the Analysis Server is running is used to set the locale of the Analysis Server. If a query is received from a client that has the same locale, the server is able to execute the query on the Analysis Server when appropriate. However, if the locale of the client does not match the locale of the server, the data is transferred to the client for processing.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for the Microsoft SQL Server 2000 (the Analysis Services Components - Sql2kasp1.exe). For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:
