Ok.. if you are using SSAS 2005 and using the deployment wizard (not using BIDS) – probably because you want to retain your partitions or something. But anyways, if you use it and choose the option to retain your roles, you will deploy, and no one will be able to get to your SSAS DB or Cubes. What gives?
See this link on Microsoft. Doesn’t make sense to me but I guess in Microsoft speak Retain roles and members really equals Screw up roles and members and leave you scratching your head.
