Hi Satya,
You need to move this thread to SQL Server 2000 analysis Services Section,
because the thread is about archieving OLAP DB and this option is only visible in 2000.
In 2005,the same operation is named as backup.
And Ashfaq is saying he can see the option Archieve.
how i can move it give me the steps Ashfaq

Hi Satya,
I had suggested to move this thread from as 2005 section to as2000 section because it is related to AS 2000.
i tried and look around but didn’t know where i can get the option to move this to SQL 2000.
if you knew you can e-mail me at [email protected]

This command is not tsql command but you can execute it using xp-cmdshell commaned… ex: exec xp-cmdshell ‘archive command…’ Mohammed U.
I read through articlehttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/312399
To create a batch file and then schedule it to archive analysis cubs.
I tried on my test box D:program FilesMicrosoft Analysis ServicesBin>msmdarch /a MY_SERVER_NAME “Program FilesMicrosoft Analysis ServicesData” “FoodMart 2000” “C:FoodMart2000.cab” And it really backed/Archived it. But when I try doing it on my production box I used this. U:> “E:program FilesMicrosoft Analysis ServicesBinmsmdarch” /a SERVERNAME “E:program FilesMicrosoft Analysis ServicesData” “FoodMart 2000” \ZoolooworgroupsackupMainFoodMart 2000.cab I don#%92t know what I am missing even though I see that msmdarch.exe is started but after few seconds disappear on task manager window. Also my actual cube data I am linking from a local sql server so instead of referring to
“E:program FilesMicrosoft Analysis ServicesData” “FoodMart 2000” Where I would be referencing to. If any one has an eagle eye please come forward. Regards Ashfaq
