How do I trace what is causing an "MSSQLServerOLAPService error 3001" error?

I am seeing the following error in the event log:

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      MSSQLServerOLAPService
Event Category:      Server
Event ID:      124
Date:            25/05/2009
Time:            1:05:27 p.m.
User:            N/A
Computer:      BEANIE
Relational data provider reported error: [Invalid argument.;3001].

I have tried a number of SQL Profile traces but am obviously not having any luck!

Any ideas?

The problem has been resolved.

The permissions of the SQL Server startup / admin account had been changed.

The MSSQLServerOLAPService was being started as the local system account and looks as if these were clashing.

Changed the MSSQLServerOLAPService to start with the same account used by SQL Server service.
