XML CHECK IN Utility Version[2.7.305.0] Event Log Trace Level Off File Log Trace Level Verbose

Command Line: "D:\tdbtools\programs\NetIQ\Analysis Center\bin\XmlCheckIn" -MANAGEPARTITION:GetAddRemovePartitions

Argument: -MANAGEPARTITION:GetAddRemovePartitions
** Error [NQOLAP] Error occured while Adding the partitions
Exception: Microsoft.AnalysisServices.OperationException: Errors in the metadata manager. The aggregation design with an ID of 'AggregationDesign', of the 'vFact' partition, does not correspond to an existing aggregation design in the measure group.


Please contact NetIQ Techinical Support for more details.


The AC_OLAP db is not dropped and re-created, while applying SP1. This is what causes the error when the OLAP job tries to add a new partition. Verify that SP1 installed correctly.
