Symptoms

Trying to add the "Essbase" application access type to a Planning user in Shared Services so the user can access native Essbase applications using the Excel Add-in.  Shared Services confirms the update when saved but when checking the user again, it only has "Planning" access. This also happens when trying to use the MaxL command to modify the application access type.
