Automate SSAS Syncing

Every day this week I am going to be posting part of a script that I recently wrote, but broken down into separate components that are useful in their own right. The full script, which I will be sharing at the end of the week, automates the synchronisation of SSAS cubes from one instance to another. So to make this an automated process that was robust to any deviation I had to make sure that the destination service account has full admin access to the source database, that the destination disk could stand the anticipated growth as well as the copy of the sync'd cube, and that the datasource's connection string on the destination database was reset to it's original value. Typically the datasource does not need updating, but the destination databases are used in a different environment with their own datasource. And as the sync also syncs the datasource it is necessary to update the datasource back to its original value
