In my desktop, client already installed SQL Server 2008 R2 and working with Database Engine and Analysis Server.

When I try to attach sample db (sample files from Microsoft Press's SQL Server 2008 MDX Step By Step, ) for my self practice, it says i have no access / permission.

I want to practice and do some testing for my own learning purpose. For this, it should not connect with client's database/server.

Let me know how to manifest this.

Is there any alternate ways ?

Regards
Rave

You should be having dbcreator role assigned to your login. Or you can also ask for sysadmin if you want to do some other task.
