Hello Experts!

I'm having trouble with my SSAS service... When I try to start it on my server (Windows Server 2003 SP 2) I get the error:
"The request failed or the service did not responde in a timely fashion. Consult the event log or other applicable error logs for details".

Going to the Event Viewer I can see:
"The service cannot be started: Message-handling subsystem: The message manager for the default locale cannot be found. The locale will be changed to US English. File system error: The following error occurred while opening the file '\\?\D:\OLAPlog\msmdsrv.log': Access is denied. . Message-handling subsystem: The message manager for the default locale cannot be found. The locale will be changed to US English. The following system error occurred:  The device is not ready. ."

The device mentioned is the log file or the device on which the databases are stored? How do I change the configuration for these device location?
Or is it another problem that I'm missing?

Thanks in advance!
