OLAP Cube Servers

The SAS® OLAP Server provides dedicated storage for data that has been summarized along multiple business dimensions. The server uses a threaded, scalable, and open technology and is especially designed for fast-turnaround processing and reporting.

For any updates or hot fixes that are required before you can migrate, see the baseline requirements topic.

Messages

caution Conflict over port number found between server-name-1 and server-name-2.
You can ignore this message if server-name-1 and server-name-2 are the same server (for example, Connection: Connect Server and Connection: Connect Server). Contact SAS Technical Support if the two servers are different.

caution After installing SAS OLAP Server, you will need to determine which cubes and shared dimensions need to be rebuilt. A cube or shared dimension may need to be rebuilt if the target system is a different operating system or if the path for the cube must change on the target system.
This message is a reminder of a post-migration task. In some deployments, rebuilding cubes can be time-consuming, so this task is left to the administrator or user, following migration. For more information, see SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide.

caution After installing SAS OLAP Server, you will need to recreate existing cubes manually.
This message is a reminder of a post-migration task. In some deployments, rebuilding cubes can be time-consuming, so this task is left to the administrator or user, following migration. For more information, see SAS Intelligence Platform: Migration Guide.

caution The server name contains characters not compatible with target SAS version. Please remove the incompatible characters from server name before migration.
Correct the name of the server in the previous deployment's SAS Management Console, and run SAS Migration Utility again.

The naming convention in the SAS Management Console has changed. In SAS 9.1.3, the forward slash and backslash characters are supported in server names, but in SAS 9.2 and later, these characters are not supported. Other unsupported characters in server names include control characters (e.g., tabs, newlines) and leading or trailing blanks. The name must not be greater than 60 characters, and must be specified (non-null).

caution "server-name" will not be migrated successfully, as its port cannot be found. To support migration for this server, you need to update the port attribute of the connection of this server and run SMU again.
Correct the port attribute in SAS Management Console and run SAS Migration Utility again.

caution "server-name" uses TCP/IP service "service-name". Make sure the service is available on the target system to avoid configuration failure during migration.
This message indicates that an administrator set the service attribute manually with the SAS Management Console, and the attribute contains characters that are not supported in the target deplopyment. Usually these unsupported characters are white space. Correct the service attribute in SAS Management Console and run SAS Migration Utility again.
Multiple OLAP Servers

Prior to the second maintenance release of SAS 9.2, the Analysis Report does not list all the OLAP servers that are migrated. All valid SAS OLAP servers are migrated.
