FIX: ROLAP Distinct Count on data source is not started when it is running from SSAS 2012 to back-end SQL Server 2014

Consider the following scenario:
  • You set a Microsoft SQL Server 2014 database as the data source of a Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services (SSAS) database.
  • You enable Distinct Counts by setting the value of the OLAP\ProcessPlan\EnableRolapDistinctCountOnDataSource property to 1 in the Msmdsrv.ini file of the SSAS instance.
  • You restart the SSAS instance, and reprocess the SSAS database.
In this scenario, the query does not work correctly.
