Remarks

This object is the root object for the entire Analysis Management Objects (AMO) object model tree. With an object of ClassType Server you can:

  • Connect to a computer on which an instance of Analysis Services is running.

  • Connect (create a session) and disconnect (end session context) to an instance of Analysis Services.

  • Capture XML message logs of command traffic to Analysis Services.

  • Identify the product edition and product level.

  • Execute requests to create other Analysis Services objects, such as databases, data sources, commands, dimensions, cubes, data mining models, and roles.

Inheritance Hierarchy

           Microsoft.AnalysisServices.MajorObject
            Microsoft.AnalysisServices.Server

Example

The following code creates and initializes an instance of Analysis Services. "LocalHost" specifies the instance running on the same computer as your AMO application.

// Create instance of Analysis Services object
Server myServer = new Server();
// Connect to local instance of Analysis Services
myServer.Connect("LocalHost");
// An error will be raised if the connection attempt fails
// Your code goes here
// DisConnect to the local instance of Analysis Services
myServer.DisConnect();

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
