how can I find out the above?

I am getting the

Cannot connect to Server 'ServerName'.The Server is either not started or too busy

message. The service is running. Hence I am wondering to check if the right provider version is being used.

Thanks

Could you explain what and how you are trying to connect when you get the error?

Actually running the cube from the app crashes and gives the above error.

So you run a "report"(cube) in the "app" and what is the "app"?
Obviously the connection cannot be made to the server and are you positive that the 'ServerName' is Analysis Services?

The app is a .net based web-based application. Users open IE,log in and start using the features of the program, and one button is to run a report - behind the report is the cube.

No, the 'ServerName' is the actual server name - that is what is popping in the error message.

Make sure SQL Browser is running without any issues.

Are you able to connect to the server through SSMS?

SQL Server Browser is disabled (log on as Local Service). are there any reasons to disable the browser service?

>>Are you able to connect to the server through SSMS?
No problems there.

SQL Browser must be running.

This is a SQL Service that is " listens for incoming requests for Microsoft SQL Server resources and provides information about SQL Server instances installed on the computer"..."For each instance of the Database Engine and SSAS, the SQL Server Browser service (sqlbrowser) provides the instance name and the version number."

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms181087.aspx

You connect fine from SSMS on the actual server via RDP or remote form a client computer on the same network?

No. Sometimes the installation defaults it to disabled but it needs to be running.

OK- it is started and running, but it did not fix the original problem.

any other foundational settings?

what about Data Provider version? can we confirm it somehow to make sure have the right one?

OK, so SQL browser is running on the SQL and the Analysys services servers right?
You mentioned <<Users open IE,log in and start using the features of the program, and one button is to run a report - behind the report is the cube.>>
Is it a SSRS report or some ASP report that needs to retrieve data from the SSAS cube?

You could check MDAC to be same on SQL SSAS and SSRS servers by:
