BUG #: 445 (SQL Hotfix)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release.

SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by the hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

When you run a Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) query against a measure group in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services, you experience the following symptoms:
  • The MDX query takes much longer than you expect to run. For example, a query that you expect to take approximately 12 seconds to run may take approximately 4 minutes to run.
  • If you run a SQL Server Profiler trace to trace the query execution, you determine that Analysis Services incorrectly reads data from the partitions instead of from the aggregations.
This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:
  • You run a Process Incremental operation on one or more of the partitions in the measure group that you query.
  • You run an MDX query that resembles the following.
    select filter([Measures].members, [Measures].currentmember.member_caption = [Measures].currentmember.member_caption) on columns from [Adventure Works]
Note If you run a Process Index operation on the partitions on which you ran the Process Incremental operation, this problem does not occur.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of a code problem in Analysis Services. A dimension may have lazy processing enabled. This is when the ProcessingMode property is set to the LazyAggregations value. Additionally, the AttributeRelationship value of this dimension may have the RelationshipType property set to the Flexible value. If you run a Process Update operation on this dimension without also running a Process Index operation, Analysis Services drops the flexible aggregations. Additionally, Analysis Services does not rebuild the aggregations.

Hotfix information

A supported hotfix is available from Microsoft. However, this hotfix is intended to correct only the problem that is described in this article. Apply this hotfix only to systems that are experiencing this specific problem. This hotfix might receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, we recommend that you wait for the next software update that contains this hotfix.

If the hotfix is available for download, there is a "Hotfix download available" section at the top of this Knowledge Base article. If this section does not appear, contact Microsoft Customer Service and Support to obtain the hotfix.

Note If additional issues occur or if any troubleshooting is required, you might have to create a separate service request.

http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support (http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support)
Note The "Hotfix download available" form displays the languages for which the hotfix is available. If you do not see your language, it is because a hotfix is not available for that language.

Prerequisites

To apply this hotfix, you must have Analysis Services installed on the computer.

Restart information

You do not have to restart the computer after you apply this hotfix. However, the Analysis Services service automatically stops and then restarts when you apply this hotfix.

If the computer on which you apply this hotfix is configured for HTTP access, you must stop Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) before you apply this hotfix. Then, you must restart IIS after you apply this hotfix.

If Analysis Services is installed as a named instance, you must stop the SQL Server Browser service when you apply this hotfix. You must stop this service because this hotfix updates the Msmdredir.dll component of the SQL Server Browser service.

Registry information

You do not have to change the registry.
