Solution

Deploying a cube is very simple. So for removing this error I am doing some process.

First select the database name or project name from solution explorer, right click the click on process.

After clicking on process it first ask “Would you like to build and deploy the project first?” so if this is a first time to deploying or processing a cube then click yes otherwise no.

I am clicking Yes. Now the process has started. Here it is showing that deployment completed successfully. This means in your analysis service database, the structure of database is created, but you can’t access your cube, because the process is not complete. It shows the next wizard.

Now click Run. See here it is showing some error “process failed”:

So for removing this error go to solution explorer. Double click on .ds file.

Now here go to Impersonation Information tab and select “use a specific windows user name and password”

And put your username and password here. Now click OK

Again select the database name or project name from solution explorer, right click and then click on process. Here is also see deployment completed successfully. Now click on run, this time it is showing process succeeded.

So the cube is ready, you can access cube either from BIDS or from SSMS by connecting the analysis service.

Here we can drag and drop column based on requirements.
