BUG #: 11210 (Plato7.x)
BUG #: 11281 (Plato7.x)
When you process a dimension or cube through an ASP page by using Decision Support Objects (DSO), the processing fails with the following error messages:
DSO error '80040051' Cannot open database 'Database Name' on the Analysis server
Could not Initialize Database 'Database Name'
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:
290211 INF: How to Obtain the Latest SQL Server 2000 Service Pack
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services version 8.0. This problem was first corrected in the Analysis Services Components of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 1.
When processing a cube or dimension through the Web by using Microsoft Visual Basic script in an ASP page to make calls to a DSO DLL file, the error messages listed in the "Symptoms" section occur. The error messages occur when the Internet Information Server (IIS) property Application Isolation is set to Medium or High. The error messages do not display if you execute the code only through Microsoft Visual Basic or Microsoft VBScript, but they will occur if you use ASP.

Steps to Reproduce Behavior

  1. Create a DLL file by using the following Visual Basic code:
    ** Visual Basic DSO COM component:	Private dsoServer As DSO.Server	Private dsoDB As DSO.MDStore	Private dsoCube As DSO.MDStore	Private dsoDim As DSO.Dimension	Private strDBName As String	'Private dsoMea As DSO.Measure		'/*	' Project Name: ProcessDimension	' Class Name: clsProcessDim	' Description: VB ActiveX COM wrapper for DSO.	'*/ 	Public Function ProcessDimension() As Boolean	'This sample is based on the FoodMart database.		On Error GoTo errProcessDimension	strDBName = "FoodMart 2000"	    	Set dsoServer = New DSO.Server	dsoServer.Connect ("LocalHost")		Set dsoDB = dsoServer.MDStores("FoodMart 2000")		Set dsoCube = dsoDB.MDStores(1)		Set dsoDim = New DSO.Dimension	'Debug.Print dsoDB.Dimensions.Count		'Need to process Dimension based on Database.Dimension collection.For Each dsoDim In dsoDB.Dimensions	    If dsoDim.Name = "Promotions" Then	        dsoDim.Process processRefreshData	        ProcessDimension = True	        Exit For	    End If	Next	'You could processFull on the Cube here if needed.	'dsoCube.Process processRefreshData		ProcessDimension = True	Exit Function		errProcessDimension:	    ProcessDimension = False	    Err.Raise Err.Number, Err.Source, Err.Description		End Function					
  2. Use the following code, and create an ASP page:
    ** ASP code:	<HTML>	<BODY>	<%@ Language=VBScript %>		<%	dim objCubeProc	dim blnResult		set objCubeProc = Server.CreateObject("ProcessDimension.clsProcessDim")	blnResult = objCubeProc.ProcessDimension		if blnResult=True then		Response.Write "Done..."	else		Response.Write "Error..."	end if	%>	</BODY>	</HTML>					
  3. Register the DLL you created in step 1 on the same computer as Internet Information Server (IIS) and Analysis Services.
  4. Place the ASP page in the WWWROOT folder, and then set the Application Isolation property to HIGH.
  5. Load the ASP page into Microsoft Internet Explorer.

NOTE: If your repository is stored in the default Msmdrep.mdb file, you may need to reduce the security to the file in order for the processing of the cube or dimension through a ASP page to work correctly.
