How About a Connection to a Remote SSAS?

Can we specify credentials to be used?

You can connect to remote SSAS servers fine using windows credentials. But SSAS itself does not support passing credentials unless you are using HTTP authentication - Is that what you are talking about - Passing credentials when connecting over HTTP?

I just did a quick test with http connectivity and you can pass the user name and password in the cmdlets like get-asserver by appending them after the server name.


$svr = get-asserver "http://localhost/olap/msmdpump.dll;User ID=<UserName>;Password=<Password>"

However their appears to be some issue with doing this using the provider to create a PSDrive so I'll have to have a look at that.
