When attempting to migrate the OLAP repository from Access to SQL Server or from an existing SQL Server to another SQL Server, the process will fail if the OLAP repository does not have at least one OLAP Services database defined on the server.

The following error message appears:

Error copying repository data.


To migrate the OLAP Services repository, create at least one OLAP Services database on the server prior to migrating the repository.
