A place for my thoughts and experiences on SQL Server, Business Intelligence and .NET
Today I was looking for a Powershell script to automatize the backup of Analysis Services database also capable to manage retention.
In such search I stubled upon the SSASBackp PowerShell script created by Idera which is also released for free.
There’s other script beside that in their PowerShell Free Scripts page
Though many of them probably needs some customization to satisfy your own specific needs, they can be a very useful as starting point to build your own (SSAS Backup is one exception since it is full featured and immediately usable without any changes).
