Cube Deployment Error in Analysis Services MS SQL Server 2005

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
ISSUE: I cannot deploy my cube I created in an Analysis Services tutorial. See. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms166576(v=SQL.90).aspx.. When I deploy my cube I get this error,
“Error      1      The project could not be deployed to the 'localhost' server because of the following connectivity problems :  A connection cannot be made. Ensure that the server is running.  To verify or update the name of the target server, right-click on the project in Solution Explorer, select Project Properties, click on the Deployment tab, and then enter the name of the server.”      

1. BI and SQL Sever 2005 is on a local XP computer
2. My instance is MSSQLSERVER (see SQL Server Configuration Manager)
3. My computer name is MARIO-81135DD02
4. When I connect to the SQL Server the server name is “MARIO-81135DD02”  
     and authentication is “Windows Authentication  

1.      Change project properties to several names for server
2.      Under Connection Manager I edit the string and test connection with computer name (MARIO-81135DD02) and localhost. No problem
3.      Under Connection Manager I used Native OLE DB\SQL Server Native Client 10.0 and Native OLE DB\Microsoft OLE DP Provider for SQL Server. No problem
4.      Under Impersonation Information I experimented with all scenarios (Use a specific user name and password to default) All give me the error as stated above
