SQL Server analysis service command does not retry in agent job

I'm working on SQL Server 2008 R2 version. I have scheduled a SQL server agent job to process analysis service cube using an analysis service command. Sometimes this job fails due to network load. So I set this job to retry 2 times after 10 mins interval.
There were no retry attempts when job failed. There was no error message.
I simulated this scenario using simple analysis service command which I intentionally set to fail. That's right. It's not retrying for analysis service commands. Any workaround for this ? any suggestions ?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Anush87,
In your scenario, you had set that the step to retry 2 times after 10 mins interval. However, there were no any retry attempts when job failed, and you can reproduce this issue, right?
Since there is no any error message, it's hard to give you the root reason that cause this issue. Based on my research, so many other people had encountered this issue which you can see on the link below
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/543acccb-f107-420b-9652-53856c9137bb/sql-server-agent-job-retry-not-working?forum=sqldatabaseengine, you can you can submit a feedback at the link below
So that Microsoft will confirm that if this issue is a bug in SQL Server Agent job.
However, in order to troubleshoot this issue, you can query Agent job information to ensure the job configure settings are correct, you can refer to the link below to check it.
Hope this helps.

  • SQL Server Browser service group does not exists. Check for earlier failures in the setup. during sql express 2008 R2 setup

    I have an issue while installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. When I was installing SQL Server, I occurred an error message as shown in the figure.
    I have followed couple of links as in
    this and
    this links but it did not fix the issue. Can anyone help me on this issue?

    Hi gauravroondhe2306,
    According to your description, you fail to install SQL Server 2008 R2 express with the error that SQL Server Browser service group does not exist. Please help to post SQL Server setup error log for analysis. By default, SQL Server setup summary and detail
    logs are located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log.
    Based on my research, this issue could occur when you install SQL Server on a Domain Controller, or the machine's name has been changed and the browser service group is named with the original machine's name.
    To troubleshoot the issue, you could follow the solutions below.
    1.Use SQL Server 2008 R2 Best Practice Analyzer to detect if SQL Server is installed on a domain controller. If SQL Server is installed on a domain controller, please demote your machine from being a domain controller and install the SQL Server again since
    it is not recommended to install SQL Server on a domain controller.
    2.Check if the name of local user group matches the machine's current name. If it doesn't match, please change the name of the local user group accordingly, and install SQL Server again. For more information about the process, please refer to the article:

  • SQL Server Analysis Services not showing in Services on Server on Central Admin

    Hi All
    We have a Sharepoint 2013 farm set up (2xApp, 2xWeb, 1xSQL) and we have a number of excel powerpivot workbooks deployed and refreshing.
    This was all working fine, until recently when our Excel 2013 Tabular workbooks stopped refreshing manually.  This had worked fine in the past, but now is giving the following error:
    "An error occurred during an attempt to establish a connection to the external data source"
    The first thing I wanted to check was that the "SQL Server Analysis Services" was started in Services on Server within Central Admin.   However when i navigated to check this, I noticed that the service was no longer listed at all.
    I checked the Analysis services for Powerpivot is running on the server and it is registered within Data Models on Excel services.   
    There was recently some Windows updates that were applied to the servers, but i'm pretty confident that the refresh was working after these, however i cant rule out 100%.
    Hoping for any advice on what I can check/do here?

    When i try to run that tool i actually get a strange error (we are running Enterprise Edition):
    "PowerPivot for SharePoint 2013 Configuration is missing prerequisites: SharePoint 2013 Enterprise Edition is required.
    For more information go to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=247828.
    Please address the validation failures and try again."
    Yes it looks like on the server hosting PowerPivot analysis server that a number of windows updates got applied.  However
    none look to be specifically about for SQL, and the 2 cumulative ones are for IE and Active X for Windows Server.

  • [Forum FAQ] How do I create calculated measure using AMO in SQL Server Analysis Services?

    In SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS), you can create a calculated measure in SQL Server Data Tool (SSDT)/Boniness Integrated Development Studio (BIDS). Sometimes you may need to create calculated measure by using AMO in a C# or VB project.
    In this article, I will demonstrate so how to create calculated measure using AMO in SSAS?
    Before create calculated measure using AMO, you need to ensure that the following components were installed in your server.
    The multidimensional database AdventureWorks Multidimensional Model 2012
    A SQL Server with SSIS and SSAS installed
    The AMO libraries installed:
    X86 Package (SQL_AS_AMO.msi)
    X64 Package (SQL_AS_AMO.msi)
    Here is the detail steps to create calculated measure using AMO in SSAS.
    Open SSDT and create a new SSIS project.
    Drag Script Task to the design surface.
    Click SSIS-> Variables to open the Variables window and add two variables that used to connect to the server and database.
    Create a connection to connect to SSAS server.
    Rename the connection name to ssas.
    Double click the Script Task to open Script Task Editor.
    Add Connection and Database variables to ReadWriteVariables textbox and then click Edit Script button.
    Add AMO reference in the Solution Explore window.
    Copy the script below and paste it into the script.
    Dim objServer As Server
    Dim objDatabase As Database
    Dim strDataBaseID As String
    Dim objCube As Cube
    Dim objMdxScript As MdxScript
    Dim objCommand As Command
    Dim strCommand As String
    objServer = New Server
    objDatabase = objServer.Databases("AdventureWorksDW2012Multidimensional-EE2")
    strDataBaseID = objDatabase.ID
    If objDatabase.Cubes.Count > 0 Then
    objCube = objDatabase.Cubes("Adventure Works")
    If objCube.MdxScripts.Count > 0 Then
    objMdxScript = objCube.MdxScripts("MdxScript")
    objMdxScript = objCube.MdxScripts(0)
    objCube.MdxScripts.Add("MdxScript", "MdxScript")
    objMdxScript = objCube.MdxScripts("MdxScript")
    End If
    objCommand = New Command
    strCommand = "CREATE MEMBER CURRENTCUBE.[Measures].[Multipy Measures By 3]"
    strCommand = strCommand & " AS [Measures].[Internet Sales Amount] * 3, "
    strCommand = strCommand & " VISIBLE = 1 ; "
    objCommand.Text = strCommand
    End If
    Then you can run this SSIS package to create the calculated measure.
    Applies to
    Microsoft SQL Server 2005
    Microsoft SQL Server 2008
    Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2
    Microsoft SQL Server 2012

    Is this a supported scenario, or does it use unsupported features?
    For example, can we call exec [ReportServer].dbo.AddEvent @EventType='TimedSubscription', @EventData='b64ce7ec-d598-45cd-bbc2-ea202e0c129d'
    in a supported way?

  • Reverse Engineering Workaround -  SQL Server Analysis Services 2012

    Hello Everyone:
    Does anyone happen to know of a workaround for this issue?   One of the reasons that my organization purchased PowerDesigner in the first place was to be able to reverse engineer any number of databases and cubes.  I have to say that it's pretty upsetting to purchase a product in 2014 that doesn't even support a product that came out years ago.  Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

    Hi Rmudigonda,
    According to your description, you are experiencing the error below while starting SQL Server Analysis Services, right?
    SQL Server Analysis Services () service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not used by other services or programs
    Based on my research, this issue can be caused by that OCW11 and MSXML6 are corrupt, please try to downloaded MSXML6 on the link
    Install it and check if this issue is persists or not. For the detail information about it, please refer to the link below.

  • SQL Server Analysis Services (PowerPivot) instance returned the following error:

    SQL Server Analysis Services (PowerPivot) instance returned the following error: Error Code: 3241607174 Description: A connection corresponding to the embedded PowerPivot data was not found in the
    Excel workbook, file 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSAS10_50.POWERPIVOT\OLAP\Backup\Sandboxes\PowerPivotServiceApplication1\ReadOnlyExclusive-1096b00b-c487-46f9-afea-f717148863a8-Test_Sheet.xlsx'
    Hi Have Installed power pivot to and exsistinf farm standalone farm.
    What Should be the connection in the Excel fiile?

    According to your post, my understanding is that  you got an error with SQL Server Analysis Services.
    Did you have installed PowerPivot for Excel on a client machine and modeled a database as part of this workbook?
    The refresh in question is about refreshing the embedded Analysis Services database with data retrieved from the backend sources (defined when the database was originally modeled) and resaving the updated workbook. It should not be confused
    with Excel / Excel Services options to refresh the data connections in the workbook. That option is about refreshing data stored in Excel’s caches. With regards to PowerPivot, that would be refreshing from the embedded database, not the backend data from which
    the database was sourced. In summary, this feature will not work against a workbook which does not have an embedded database because there is no database to refresh. This is by design and should not be interpreted as indicating that there is something wrong
    with your system.
    More information:
    There are some similar articles for your reference.
    For the error “The data connection uses Windows Authentication and user credentials could not be delegated. The following connections failed to refresh”.
    There are multiple causes for this error message. The common factor behind all of them is that Excel Services cannot get a valid Windows user identity from a claims token in SharePoint.

  • SSAS(SQl Server Analysis Services).

    Hello Sir,
    We have created an OLAP cube using Business Intelligence Development Studio(BIDS) with
    SQL Server Analysis Services(SSAS) using our data Source which is working fine & for reporting we are connecting the cube with
    MS-Excel through data Connections & we are able to generate the reports with the cube data by filtering & Customizing according to the requirement of reports within the same server instance. But when we want to deploy the cube onto
    the different server (basically on users server) to generate the respective reports we are facing problem. As the end user is not going to have access to the SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio how can we deploy the cube. As, we are using ODBC
    As this is our first project through SSAS, we kindly need some support to proceed forward. 
    So, Please find the Queries related to the enclosed description as above.
    Queries related to SSAS Cube:
    What are the steps involved to deploy a OLAP cube created in one server to another server?
    Is there any third party tool required for it?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Praveen,
    The following link tells you what you need to know; -
    I confirm you do not need a third party tool to deploy a cube and empower your users to access this cube.
    So in summary; -
    Within your Analysis Services solution within BIDs; -
    1) Right click your mouse over the Analysis Services database icon, which is immediately below the solution icon.
    2) Select the sub tab "Deployment".
    3) Enter the name of the server you need to deploy to.
    4) Click "OK".
    5) Right click your mouse (again) over the Analysis Services database icon, which is immediately below the solution icon.
    6) Select "Deploy"

  • MS SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) OLAP Connection - Dimension descriptions

    We are trying to create some reports on BO 4.0 on top of BPC 10 MS information.
    In order to overcome some issues related to standard connector between BO and BPC (XMLA Planning and consolidation 10 for Microsoft platform), we created a new connection based on discussion MS SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) OLAP Connection - Business Intelligence (BusinessObjects) - SCN Wiki
    However we have a major issue with this approach. We cannot see on BO dimension member descriptions.
    Is there anything that we missed?
    Could you help?

    So, what you need is a model like SQL Server failover cluster instances. (before sql server 2012)
    In SQL Server 2012, AlwaysOn replaces SQL Server failover cluster, and it has been seperated to
    AlwaysOn Failover Cluster Instances (SQL Server) and
    AlwaysOn Availability Groups (SQL Server).
    Since your requirement is not in database level, I think the best option is to use AlwaysOn Failover Cluster Instances (SQL Server).
    As part of the SQL Server AlwaysOn offering, AlwaysOn Failover Cluster Instances leverages Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC) functionality to provide local high availability through redundancy at the server-instance level—a
    failover cluster instance (FCI). An FCI is a single instance of SQL Server that is installed across Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC) nodes and, possibly, across multiple subnets. On the network, an FCI appears to be an instance of SQL
    Server running on a single computer, but the FCI provides failover from one WSFC node to another if the current node becomes unavailable.
    It is similar to SQL Server failover cluster in SQL 2008 R2 and before.

  • Missing "Windows Service - SQL Server Analysis Services"

    In my SharePoint 2013 Central Administration (this is a Project Server 2013 deployment), I got an alert for this error:
    PowerPivot: MidTier process account should have 'Full Read' permission on all associated SPWebApplications. 
    After reading
    this thread, I assumed I have the 2 accounts configured the wrong way, so I check
    this article to see how to change the accounts, but on the section
    "Change the account under which each service runs" it says to select
    "Windows Service - SQL Server Analysis Services", which I can't find like as you can see in the screenshot below. How can I solve this? I'm new to this all, so if you could simplify the explanation I would be thankful, if not, I'll
    just work on it anyway. :) Thanks!

    Hi ,
    In the process of configuring PowerPivot for SharePoint 2010, automatically select the Analysis Services for SharePoint Integration feature. After configuring PowerPivot for SharePoint 2010, we can see
    SQL Server Analysis Services and SQL Server PowerPivot System Service are started on manage services on server. So you can verify whether analysis service is installed for SharePoint on manage
    services on server.
    More information, please refer to the links:
    As Trevor said, for this issue, you can ignore it. Anyway, you can also check the link:

  • Non Windows Credentials Sql Server Analysis Services

    I am attempting to connect to an OLAP cube using power query from sql server analysis services, but without windows credentials.  Is there a way in which I can perform this action?  It doesn't seem to support this type of connection without using
    windows credentials and I would like to use a different username and password.

    Not today. It's a frequently-requested feature, so I expect we'll probably implement it relatively soon.

  • SQL Server Analysis Services Filter web part.

    Hi all
    In a NTLM farm with 1 SharePoint and 1 SQL server, I am using clamis based authentication for Excel Services app in SharePoint Server 2010.
    While all Excel documents work, I get error on "SQL Server Analysis Services Filter" web part.
    The filter works when I am logged on the sharepoint server and open the Intranet to use it, but doesn't work if I reach the Intranet by not logging on the SharePoint server.
    The error I get is on the filter web part:
    "An error occured while retrieving filter values (The connection either timed out or was lost).
    Anyone else that have had the same problem?
    Any ideas to troubleshoot? :)

    OK, I solved this problem with the following workaround: (Notice that the problem may be solved when you have completed just one of the steps, so be sure you make a test everytime you have completed one).
    Try changing your Excel Services Application File Access Method to
    IMPERSONATE, that can be achieved in SharePoint Central Administration
    -> Manage Service Applications -> Excel Services Application Settings ->
    Global Settings. (Make sure the option for Allow Cross Domain Access is unchecked if you don't have a security certificate installed on the server, also in the most cases you don't need this option). Please take note of your Excel Services
    Application ID.
    Then modify your performance point data connection file in Excel, by oppening Connection Properties and in the Definitions tab, click on Authentication, set Authentication Type to Use a Stored Account and then write your excel services application ID in
    the textbox labeled "Application ID", by default the excel services application ID is
    "Excel Services Application" (no quotes), now click OK. Then click Export Connection File and overwrite current connection file in SharePoint.
    (You may need to restart the Excel Calculations Service on Manage Services in this Farm page).
    Second: (If before step doesn't solved the problem already)
    Change the service account for the SQL Server Analysis Service to an account that have Delegation permission or change the current account to LocalSystem.
    Third (If the other two steps doesn't solved the problem).
    Check in SharePoint Central Administration if the service Claims To Windows Token is started, if not, just start it.
    I solved the connection problem, but now When I get the hierarchies in the filter, I can not drill more than 2 levels down, in the third level it throws the following exception: "There was an error in the callback"

  • HADR Solution for SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) 2014 on Azure Iaas

    Hi All
    I am required to build a HA/DR solution for SQL Server and SSAS 2014 on Azure. So far I could build AlwaysOn high availability solution for SQL Server on Azure but haven't found any solution for SSAS.
    Failover Clustering is not an option on azure because of the restriction of not been able to use shared storage. We also determined that the cost savings of using SQL + the cost of the 3rd Party replication tool was a wash (ie no real cost savings).
    Any lead on this would be appreciated.

    Thanks - Viral

    Hi Viral,
    A clustered implementation of SSAS can be configured in Microsoft Azure. Such a configuration would need to meet all the requirements stated in the following document including Active Directory and storage.

  • Creating OLAP report with Crystal Reports and SQL Server Analysis Services 2005

    Post Author: orahc_mao
    CA Forum: Data Connectivity and SQL
    I am currently using the trial version of the Crystal Reports XI and I wanted to do an OLAP report. The problem is I cannot select a cube using "OLAP Connection Browser" (the popup window). I already selected Microsoft OLE DB Provider and entered the server name but still can't connect.
    I don't think the problem is with SQL Server Analysis Services (2005) since Microsoft Excel - Import Data can detect the server as well as the cube I have created.
    I also tried the "Database Expert" of Crystal Reports, created an OLE DB (ADO) connection with "OLE DB Provider for OLAP Services 8.0" driver, entered the server name, checked the integrated security and then I can readily select the database created at SQL Server Analysis Services. However, I still need the OLAP grid create the report but it goes back to my original problem... selecting a cube.
    I hope somebody would help me with this issue.
    Thanks a lot!

    I don't recognize those variables as CR ones so it's likely something the original developer is setting in code.
    You'll have to discuss with that person.
    If your have SDK issues then post your question to one of the .NET or Java SDK forums.
    Thank you
