How to SSAS – SQL Server Analysis Services to generate memory dump files

In the config file msmdsrv located at “Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSAS11.MULTIDIM\OLAP\Config”.

Make sure CreateAndSendCrashReports is set to at least 1.

To configure SSAS to generate a full dump file that includes the handle information, we can set the SQLDumperFlagsOn setting to 0x34 and the MiniDumpFlagsOn setting to 0x4.

For example, the Exception section in the Msmdsrv.ini file may resemble the following:

<Exception>
<CreateAndSendCrashReports>1</CreateAndSendCrashReports>
<CrashReportsFolder/>
<SQLDumperFlagsOn>0x34</SQLDumperFlagsOn>
<SQLDumperFlagsOff>0x0</SQLDumperFlagsOff>
<MiniDumpFlagsOn>0x4</MiniDumpFlagsOn>
<MiniDumpFlagsOff>0x0</MiniDumpFlagsOff>
<MinidumpErrorList>0xC1000000, 0xC1000001, 0xC1000016, 0xC11D0005, 0xC102003F</MinidumpErrorList>
<ExceptionHandlingMode>0</ExceptionHandlingMode>
<CriticalErrorHandling>1</CriticalErrorHandling>
</Exception>
