SQL Server Migration
Posted on 2014-03-07
Any ideas here. I am doing a server migration as the organisation that I am contracted to has changed the service provider of their infrastructure and the two servers that I run my services through are on the old domain.
As such I have set up a 'stepping stone' virtual server on the new domain to provide un interrupted service whilst I move my two servers over to the new domain.
On this stepping stone server the only difference is that my two physical servers have enterprise SQL 2008R2 (database server) and standard SQL 2008R2 (cube database and web server), whereas the stepping stone server that has both the databases and cube databases and web service is running standard SQL 2008R2.
The only reason for having enterprise on the data server is for memory allocation. I have not used any of the additional enterprise features (so indexed views etc).
However one of the measures on my cube database gives me a -1 #IND error but only for one of the fiscal years. This fiscal year of data is the latest and is added in a union as it is temporarily coming from a different source and so I dumped it into different staging, release tables and unioned the data into the cube fact table in the data source view. The reason for this is that it has a different structure but is only a temporary source. The original source of data is expected to return shortly and will replace the temporary source period, so I will be removing the union statement from the data source view.
This all works perfectly on the original set up. I cant understand why its giving me this error on the new server.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Same service packs and everything.
