SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • In Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services (SSAS 2008), you create a user account that does not have the administrator permission.
  • This user has read access for a cube.
  • You process the cube.
  • You use the non-admin user account to log on to the SSAS 2008 server.
In this scenario, the Measures.X.Dim folder is created unexpectedly when you browse the cube for the first time.

You receive an error message that resembles the following if the folder is not allowed to be created. For example, you receive the error message if SSAS 2008 tries to create the folder on a read-only file system or on a read-only storage area net work (SAN) drive.
File system error: Error occured during the creation of directory: '\\?\C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSAS10.RTM10\OLAP\Data\Adventure Works DW.0.db\Adventure Works DW.0.cub\Measures.21.dim'. System Error: Invalid procedure call or argument.
