Problem with linked server

  • Hi,

    I'm using linked server to SSAS that running on same machine.

    usually the linked server is working just fine, but from time to time I get this error:

    Cannot create an instance of OLE DB provider "MSOLAP" for linked server "SALES_CUBE". (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 7302)

    restarting the SQL fix the problem till the next time.

    Any suggestions?

  • Have you tried setting the AllowInProcess property for the provider you are using

    EXEC master.dbo.sp_MSset_oledb_prop N'xxxPROVIDERxxx', N'AllowInProcess', 1


    Server Objects | Linked Servers | Providers | Right-click on a provider, and select Properties. Enable the Allow InProcess property.


  • Hi,

    Sorry for the late response, at my case the Allow InProcess was enabled on creation.

  • got any resolution for this..i am also facing this issue from long time back pls suggest resolution.
