Planning Business Modeler: You cannot access this server because you don't have the appropriate permission

Hi again and welcome to another post from Non-Stop BizTalk,

When you try to login to your Planning Server from the Planning Business Modeler you receive the error message "You cannot access this server because you dont have the appropriate permission". Dont panic! Even if you're a Global Admin on your planning server, you have to be granted a User Admin role on one of the planning apps in your server in order to be able to login to it. This MS KB article has more info on this error message:

Happy PPS,

Error Restoring PDW sample data cube in PPS 2007

Hi and welcome to another post from Non-Stop Biztalk,

I was trying to restore the data cube PDW.abf for the Monitoring Server sample available with the Microsoft PerformacnePoint Server 2007 and got the error message The level '[1-08]' object was not found in the cube when the string, [Time].[Week].[1-08], was parsed. (Microsoft.AnalysisServices). Apparently, this cube has some inconsistencies and the PPS 2007 Team has a replacement for this cube available at Replace the abf file at [SystemDrive]:\Program Files\Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server\3.0\Samples with the downloaded one and then try to restore and everything should work properly.
