SQl 2022 Deploy SSAS project and db sync

Massimo De Fanti 10 Reputation points

I'have installed SQL Server 2022 analysis services On 2 servers. In server "02" I have also installed Visual Studio 2022 with Data Tools and the "Analysis Services" component. I have developed some "SSAS Projects", I'm able to deploy the SSAS db on the 02 server and on that server I'm able to process the db. I'd like, after processing on server 02 to sync on server 01.

I'm not able to sync, I've tried with the "Synchronize Database Wizard" selecting the db on the "02" server as source and server '01' as destination but I get an error message "opening the .... 0.CryptKey.bin" file

I've also tried to deploy from Visual Studio directly to server 01 but I got this error:

"An unexpected error occurred (file 'pcserialize.cpp', line 1535, function 'ASDatabase::Serialize')."

NOte: I'm migrating from a SQL 2026 enviromente where the processe on a "02" server and then the sync on the "01" server works.

Any help will be appreciated.

    First question: Which Edition of SQL Server/SSAS are you using?

    Database Sync is only supported in the Enterprise Edition, so if you have the Standard Edition, Sync is not supported, see:

    Hi Olaf, both servers are using the Enterprise version, in both I've installed the last cumulative update (cu4). Thanks Massimo
