Bam can configure only Analysis Services 2005 or 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I receive this error when deploying my BAM activity:

    Deploying Activity... Done.
    Deploying View... ERROR: The BAM deployment failed.
    BAM can configure only analysis services 2005 or 2008

    I have a windows server 2003 installation with sql server 2008 installed including analysis services. Also, I've confirmed that the analysis service is running.

  • Hi,

    Do you have a remote SQL server or everything on a single box?

    If remote did you install the required components on the BizTalk server (see Installing BizTalk Server 2009 in a Multicomputer Environment

    Also did you had any trouble while configuring BAM infrastructure (using Biztalk configuration wizard)?

  • Hi,

    I receive the same problem when trying to deploy a RTA bam view using bm.exe: "BAM can configure only Analysis Services 2005 or 2008."

    My environment is

    MachineA: Biztalk 2009, sql Client tools 2005 & 2008

    MachineB Sql server 2005 sp2 standard (database engine & integration services)

    Have I missed to install something?


    Regards, Johan.

  • The simplest solution is to configure BAM application. When you select Basic Configuration for BizTalk it does not implicitly configure

    BAM Analysis Database

    BAM Star Schema Database

    Go and explicitly configure it and redeploy BAM.

  • You must have getting some error related to analysis services DLL or COm exception in event log?  Could you please share that.

  • You can also check the new Wikki article which helps you to setup BAM (Business Activity Monitoring) in a multi-computer environment on a Windows Server 2008 R2 platform.
