SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You connect to an instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services (SSAS 2008) or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Analysis Services (SSAS 2008 R2).
  • You create a session cube in a session from a server-based cube.
  • You are disconnected from SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2. The session is not closed.
  • A ProcessFull operation is performed on a measure group for the server-based cube. This operation causes the session cube to be updated.
  • SSAS 2008 or SSAS 2008 R2 tries to clean the session.
In this scenario, SSAS 2008 crashes. Additionally, a minidump file is generated in the SQL Server 2008 or in the SQL Server 2008 R2 log folder.
