New-SCSSASConnection

Updated: April 29, 2014

Applies To: System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager

New-SCSSASConnection

Creates a connection to SSAS.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
New-SCSSASConnection -ComputerName <String> -Credential <VMMCredential> -InstanceName <String> -Port <Int32> [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The New-SCSSASConnection cmdlet creates a connection to SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) and creates a database named VMMAnalysisServerDB on the SSAS server.

This cmdlet assumes that SSAS and Operations Manager Reporting Server are installed on the same computer. Therefore, New-SCSSASConnection also connects to the SQL Server Reporting Server Web Service to update the credentials for forecasting reports to connect to Analysis Services.

Parameters

-ComputerName<String>

Specifies the name of a computer that VMM can uniquely identify on your network. Valid formats are:

-- FQDN
-- IPv4 or IPv6 address
-- NetBIOS name

NOTE: See the examples for a specific cmdlet to determine how that cmdlet specifies the computer name.

Examples

Example 1: Create a connection to SQL Server Analysis Service

The first command gets the Run As account object named SSASRunAsAcct, and then stores the object in the $SSASCreds variable. This credential needs to be an administrator in both the SQL Server Analysis Service Instance and SQL Server Reporting Instance.

The second command creates an SSAS connection to SQL Server SQLServer01, using the default instance name of MSSQLServer and port 2383. New-SCSSASConnection uses the credentials provided in the Run As account stored in $SSASCreds to create the connection.


PS C:\> $SSASCreds = Get-SCRunAsAccount -Name "SSASRunAsAcct"
PS C:\> $SSASSConnection = New-SCSSASConnection -ComputerName "SQLServer01" -InstanceName MSSQLServer -Port 2383 -Credential $SSASCreds
