One of my client accidentally set up an SQL Server Analysis Services in multi-dimensional mode instead of Tabular mode. In this post I will show a procedure to change Analysis tabular mode in SQL Server 2016.
Analysis Services Modes
Analysis Services can be installed in one of three server modes: Multidimensional and Data Mining (default), Power Pivot for SharePoint, and Tabular. The server mode of an Analysis Services instance is determined during setup when you choose options for installing the server.
You can check the DeploymentMode property in the msmdsrv.ini file that is included in every Analysis Services instance. The value of this property identifies the server mode. Valid values are 0 (Multidimensional), 1 (SharePoint), or 2 (Tabular).
Although changing DeploymentMode property it is not supported by Microsoft, it works.
