Access to Analysis Cubes is denied????

Hallo Experts,

it is a very strange Problem. I dont know how to figure out the problem.
We made a website with different Reports (XP - Webcomponents, Pivottable).
Recordsource from the Pivottable
Provider=MSOLAP.2;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source=MCWWTKDKSQL;Initial Catalog=GB_Plus;Client Cache Size=25;Auto Synch Period=10000

Setting from the Analysis Server
'Repository'
Local:
Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=E:\Program Files\Microsoft Analysis Services\Bin\msmdrep.mdb
Remote:
Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=\\MCWWTKDKSQL\MsOLAPRepository$\msmdrep.mdb

We are working in a firm-network. So everyone can ping the server, also the collegues in GreatBritain. But they get no access to the analysis server.
They got all rights to have access, but the collegues in GB get the message
"The Pivottable list "Bonus" could not connect to the data Source "Bonus". For information...."
"0x80004005: Cannot connect to the server mcwwtkdksql. The server is either not started or to busy"

The analysis server is started and the the server isn't  ot busy.

They have also access to the SQL-Server, that works fine.

It is a nightmare. Do you know what to do? Thanks in advance

best regards

Klaus Schulze

It sounds like it is a permissions problem.  Try granting access to the user the program is using.

1:
open
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Analysis Services\Bin

and copy the msolap.asp to the IIS root on the server

2:
when you are setting the connection from the webcomponent
Server Name:   http://YourServer/
UserName:    appropriate User
Password: appropriate  Password

I'm using this technique to avoid opening firewall and use http

Note you must have SQL Server 2000 Enterprise

I forgot you must use MS OLEDB Providor for OLAP Services 8.0 Driver

I copied the file into c:\inetpub\wwwroot

I have the SQL Server Developer - is that working with your suggestion?
Which provider should i take ? Olap?

Ok lets try to make it using excel first to see if you have a problem:

Open MS Excel
Data menu -> PivotTable and Pivot Chart Report -> "Choose External Datasource" option
Next -> Press "Get Data" button -> Choose "OLAP Cubes" Tab -> Double Click on "new datasource"
Give a name to your datasource -> Select "Microsoft OLEDB Providor for OLAP Services 8.0"
In the server name type "http://YourServer/" -> Enter the username and password
Choose your database -> The select your Cube -> Ok -> Next -> Finish

Hallo weal tahon,
what settings have to be made in the IIS. I think about the Anonymous access / Atuthenticated access

Whatever setting you choose for authontication you must provide user name and password of a use in the same domain of the server

On your IIS server is this a seperate box? if so you have to make sure that COM+ is setup correctly, for the pivot control service to authenicate properly.
