sas olap problem

Hi,

I have a problem with SAS Olap Studio.

Creating a new cube, the wizard asks me to insert the Schema OLAP. I can't see the Olap Server,

so I create a new schema on SASapp. I complete the wizard, but when I need to visualize the cube,

I can't see it.

Sometimes it shows an Error about Olap Server, sometimes "few dimension" or empty set. Settings and

features of the cube are pretty simple, so I think the reason is the server...

Can anyone help me???

Hi Carmine,

They don't work differently but you can only have one schema assigned to an OLAP server at a given time.

If you want to add new olap schema then you need to define this schema to OLAP server.

1 Open SAS Management Console.

2 In the left pane, expand Server Manager.

3 Under Server Manager, locate the SAS Application Server that contains the SAS

OLAP Server. The name of one such SAS Application Server might be SASApp, for

example.

4 Right-click the top-level SAS Application Server and select Properties.

5 In the Properties window, click the OLAP Schema tab.

6 Click New to create a new OLAP schema, or select the down arrow to choose an

existing OLAP schema.

7 Click OK to save changes and close the Properties window.

8 Restart the SAS OLAP Server using the SAS OLAP Server Monitor.

Hi,

Try selecting the existing OLAP Schema (which comes with installation)->

OLAP Schema

SASApp – OLAP Schema

and try to build the cube.

Thanks,

Re: sas olap problem

I have tried but the answer of the wizard is that I haven't the permission to use "SASapp - OLAP Schema".

Where and how I can change permissions or solve the problem???

Thank you for your attention!!

Re: sas olap problem

Hi,

If you have permission to login to SAS MC->folders->SASApp – OLAP Schema->properties->authorization and then add the group or user.

If you want to define new olap schema then See the documentation.

Defining an OLAP Schema

In addition to SAS Workspace Server and SAS OLAP Server definitions, you must also have an OLAP schema defined in the active metadata server. The standard SAS deployment process creates an OLAP schema named SASApp - OLAP Schema and assigns it to the SAS OLAP Server that is also configured during deployment. To define new schemas, you can use the New OLAP Schema Wizard, which is available from SAS OLAP Cube Studio and SAS Management Console. In SAS Management Console, you can launch the OLAP Schema Wizard when you view the OLAP Schema tab on the Properties dialog box for an existing server.

These steps explain how to use SAS OLAP Cube Studio to launch the OLAP Schema Wizard and define a new schema:

Connect to the SAS Metadata Server.

Select File New OLAP Schema.

On the General page of the New OLAP Schema Wizard, enter the schema name and description. Click Next.

On the Server Assignment page, specify the OLAP Servers that can access the schema. This step is optional. Click Next.

Note: If you choose not to specify the server using the OLAP Schema Wizard, you can add that information later by modifying the schema's properties.

On the Finish page, click Finish.

Note: When defining a new SAS OLAP Server, if you accept the default definition settings, then an OLAP schema is automatically created and assigned to the server. To change that assignment to a different OLAP schema, you must edit the server definition. In SAS Management Console, select the Server Manager plug-in to make these changes.

Thanks,

Shiva

Re: sas olap problem


What is the difference between the "default" Olap schema and a "new" Olap schema?

Do they work differently?
