(I am not a professional windows server admin and its my first time dabbling with analysis services.)
I am trying to get the Analysis Services up and running such that I can fire MDX queries via XMLA.
Here is what I have done so far (on a standard "windows 2008 with sql" ec2 instance. IIS 6.1)-
- Got the sample AdventureWorks cube up and running. I can locally fire MDX queries and it works.
- Followed this link to get HTTP access to Analysis Services. (The only deviation is that in my case I see only rows 1,2,5 from figure 11)
- Can successfully connect to http://localhost/olap/msmdpump.dll from SQL Server management studio and fire XMLA EXECUTE commands with basic MDX queries.
- I am unable to to access this from a host other than localhost. I can access http://servername just fine (default IIS page) but http://servername/olap/msmdpump.dll gives me a 500 from any host other than the server itself. (I get the expected soap envelope with soap fault from a browser on localhost)
Thanks in advance for any suggestions/solution you may have.
