Symptoms

Have installed and configured EAL.  Have created an EAL bridge from the EAS Console.  When attempting to creating the essbase outline, it is throwing "Error: Essbase Cube cannot be created".  When looking for more detail in the eal.log we see the following error:  "com.essbase.api.base.EssException: Cannot restructure cube. Essbase Error(1010004): Total possible blocks of database [Drxxxxxx] exceeds the limit, which is [2^52], or [4.5036e+15], for each of two dimension groups".
