Hi there. I'm performing an automatic OLAP DB backup with msmdarch.exe. Everything is going well, but what I'm trying to do is to just archive the structure. (to speed up things, I'm afraid also of locking issues ) If you for example archive a database that is not processed you get only a couple of files in the CAB. ( roles / data source / and a .inf and a .rep ) This is what I want, only the structure. I don't care to have to process the cube if I have to restore it. And it's a lot faster the archive this way. I mean, I don't want all the aggregation and dims get saved in the CAB, just the structure. Anyone knows if it could be done ? and How ? Thanx.
