Windows Server 2008 Kerberos Bug Patch – resolves SSAS connection issues
Posted by denglishbi on July 21, 2009
Yesterday I was notified by a colleague that Microsoft had released the patch to fix the AES Kerberos issues that had been discovered earlier this year – Windows Server 2008 Kerberos Bug – Transport Connection Issues with SSAS data. I had not been notified of this yet, but I checked out the blog posting by Dr. John Tunnicliffe SSAS: Microsoft release fix for “Kerberos killing MDX” issue and he provided a link to the downloads
UPDATED (8/23/2009) *** This has been updated and is the official release for this fix now *** :
A Kerberos authentication fails together with the error code 0X80090302 or 0x8009030f on a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista when the AES algorithm is used
*** This has been updated and is the official release for this fix now ***
So for those of you who have had to put the upgrade to Windows Server 2008 on hold because of this you can now download the patch and continue on with your infrastructure upgrades. Just make sure that you properly test the patch before deploying this into your production environments.
