This element is used in cases where a Discover method call or a single XMLA command within an Execute method call completes successfully, but with errors or warnings. In such cases, a Messages element is added to the root element after all other elements, which in turn contains one or more Message elements. Each Message element represents a single message, either an error or a warning, returned by the Analysis Services instance.
