BUG #: 13910 (Plato7x)
If you try to perform a writeback operation on a cell that you do not have permission to write to, a delay of approximately 60 seconds occurs, and then the connection to the server disconnects. Depending on the client-side tool, the error message varies. For example, you receive the following error message if you are using ActiveX Data Objects (Multidimensional) (ADO MD) to perform the writeback operation:
-2147168234 Connection to the server is lost
Note This problem only occurs if you do not have the required permissions to write to the cell. Additionally, the problem does not occur if you are a member of the OLAP Administrators group (even if that group does not have permission to write back to the cube).

822017 FIX: Hotfix Information for Build 8.0.810.0 of SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services 64-bit
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4.
Because this problem only occurs when you try to write to a cube cell that you do not have permissions to write to, the fix for this issue eliminates the 60 second delay and immediately returns an appropriate error message. After you apply the fix, you receive the following error message when you are using ADO MD to perform the writeback:
-2147168234 The operation requested failed due to security problems - resource access error
