  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services

Bug #: 50000250 (SQL Hotfix)

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2000 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2000 fix release.


This article describes the following about this hotfix release:

  • The issues that are fixed by the hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for applying the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you apply the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes after you apply the hotfix package
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package


When you run a query against a cube in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services, the members of a role that uses dynamic security cannot access the Analysis Services database. This problem occurs if the following conditions are true:

  • The cube uses dynamic security on a partition.
  • The partition is enabled for real-time updates.


This problem occurs when the following events occur at the same time:

  • A request for a write lock on the cube occurs.

Note The write lock is needed so that Analysis Services can flush the cache of the cube.

  • The security evaluation for the role occurs.

The security evaluation is incorrectly canceled because of the query activity on the cube.
