Connecting to a non-MSOLAP.2 provider

Connecting to a non-MSOLAP.2 provider

Hi,

I'm trying to connect to a non-microsoft provider. The provider works as I
can connect through using the MDX Sample Application that comes with
Analysis Services, but when I try to connect using XMLA I seem to only get
the Analysis Services cubes, rather than my providers cubes.

I have changed the Data Source name and the DataSourceName and the provider
in the DataSourceInfo element. Is there anything else I need to change?

Can anyone give me more direction on how to connect to a non-microsoft
source?

Thanks in advance,
Cathie

The XMLA SDK does not support any other providers. I can't say why you would
still be seeing AS cubes though -- try to execute DISCOVER_DATASOURCES to
see what data sources are available. It should show you the renamed data
source...

Thanks,
