Hi All

In SQL Server 2005 you can only connect to SSAS with windows Authentication - this gives me quite a headache L
My database servers are located in our hosting center and are NOT part of a AD network. At the office however Im on a AD server and login on my laptop as a domain user.

Is there any way at all for me to connect to the SSAS instance on the server?

Thx a lot

You need to configure the SSAS for HTTP access and access it through browser

if your server is running Windows 2003

if your server is running Windows XP

you still need to configure HTTP access, and then in the Management studio, type the Http url, in the server name.
