Server (Decision Support Objects)
This feature will be removed in the next version of Microsoft SQL Server. Do not use this feature in new development work, and modify applications that currently use this feature as soon as possible.
The Server object in the Decision Support Objects (DSO) hierarchy represents the root object in the model tree and handles the functionality related to the Analysis server. The Server object uses the Server interface, with a ClassType property of clsServer.
The Server object is used to:
Connect to and disconnect from an Analysis server.
Start, pause, and stop the Analysis server service (MSSQLServerOLAPService) provider.
Provide detailed information, such as the version and edition, of an Analysis server.
Create other Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005 Analysis Services objects, such as databases, data sources, commands, dimensions, cubes, data mining models, and roles.
Manage object locking in Analysis Services, controlling read/write access in a multiple user situation.
Provide access to DSO Database objects using the MDStores collection.
