Topic 4, Contoso, Ltd


General Background

You are the SQL Server Administrator for Contoso, Ltd. You have been tasked with upgrading all existing SQL Server instances to SQL Server 2012.


Technical Background

The corporate environment includes an Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) domain named The forest and domain levels are set to Windows Server 2008. All default containers are used for computer and user accounts. All servers run Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1). All client computers run Windows 7 Professional SP1. All servers and client computers are members of the domain.


The current SQL Server environment consists of a single instance failover cluster of SQL Server 2008 R2 Analysis Services (SSAS). The virtual server name of the cluster is SSASCIuster. The cluster includes two nodes: Node1 and Node2. Node1 is currently the active node. In anticipation of the upgrade, the prerequisites and shared components have been upgraded on both nodes of the cluster, and each node was rebooted during a weekly maintenance window.


A single-server deployment of SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services (SSRS) in native mode is installed on a server named SSRS01. The Reporting Server service is configured to use a domain service account. SSRS01 hosts reports that access the SSAS databases for sales data as well as modeling data for the Research team. SSRS01 contains 94 reports used by the organization. These reports are generated continually during business hours. Users report that report subscriptions on SSRS01 are not being delivered. You run the reports on demand from Report Manager and find that the reports render as expected.


A new server named SSRS02 has been joined to the domain. SSRS02 will host a single- server deployment of SSRS so that snapshots of critical reports are accessible during the upgrade.


The server configuration is shown in the exhibit. (Click the Exhibit button.)


The production system includes three SSAS databases that are described in the following table.




All SSAS databases are backed up once a day, and backups are stored offsite.


Business Requirements

After the upgrade users must be able to perform the following tasks:


clip_image003Ad-hoc analysis of data in the SSAS databases by using the Microsoft Excel PivotTable client.

clip_image003[1]Daily operational analysis by executing a custom application that uses ADOMD.NET and existing Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) queries.


The detailed data must be stored in the model.


Technical Requirements

You need to minimize downtime during the SSASCIuster upgrade. The upgrade must minimize user intervention and administrative effort.

The upgrade to SQL Server 2012 must maximize the use of all existing servers, require the least amount of administrative effort, and ensure that the SSAS databases are operational as soon as possible.


You must implement the highest level of domain security for client computers connecting to SSRS01. The SSRS instance on SSRS01 must use Kerberos delegation to connect to the SSAS databases. Email notification for SSRS01 has not been previously configured. Email notification must be configured to use the SMTP server SMTP01 with a From address of Report distribution must be secured by using SSL and must be limited to the domain.


You have the following requirements for SSRS02:


clip_image003[2]Replicate the SSRS01 configuration.

clip_image003[3]Ensure that all current reports are available on SSRS02.

clip_image003[4]Minimize the performance impact on SSRS01.


In preparation for the upgrade, the SSRS-related components have been installed on the new SSRS02 server by using the Reporting Services file-only installation mode. The Reporting Services databases have been restored from SSRS01 and configured appropriately.


You must design a strategy to recover the SSRS instance on SSRS01 in the event of a system failure. The strategy must ensure that SSRS can be recovered in the minimal amount of time and that reports are available as soon as possible. Only functional components must be recovered. SSRS02 is the recovery server and is running the same version of SSRS as SSRS01. A full backup of the SSRS databases on SSRS01 is performed nightly. The report server configuration files, custom assemblies, and extensions on SSRS02 are manually synchronized with SSRS01.


While testing the Research database on SSAS01, you increase the compatibility level to 1100. You then discover a compatibility issue with the application. You must roll back the compatibility level of the database to 1050 and retest.


After completing the upgrade, you must do the following:


1.   Design a role and assign an MDX expression to the Allowed member set property of the Customer dimension to allow sales representatives to browse only members of the Customer dimension that are located in their sales regions. Use the sales representatives’ logins and minimize impact on performance.

1.   Deploy a data model to allow the ad-hoc analysis of data. The data model must be cached and source data from an OData feed.



Server Configuration:






You need to implement the Customer Sales and Manufacturing data models. What should you do? (Each correct answer presents a partial solution. Choose all that apply.)



Install a new instance of SSAS in tabular mode.


Use SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) to copy the database design to the SSAS instance, and specify tabular mode as the destination.


Use the Database Synchronization Wizard to upgrade the database to tabular mode.


Use the current SSAS instance.


Use SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) to redevelop and deploy the projects.


Correct Answer: B




You need to perform the pre-upgrade database backup operation by using SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). How should you configure the backup options?



Select the Apply compression check box. Select the Encrypt backup file check box and supply a password.

Use the Import/Export Wizard to copy the databases from the production server to the development server.


Script the databases as a Create script to a new window and then execute the script on SSAS01.


Restore the SSAS databases from the latest backup to SSAS01.


Correct Answer: C
