SSAS 2005 Migration to SSAS 2008 Browsing Error

Last Modified: 2016-02-18
Hi guys

We have just installed a 2008 server. All of our builds are on a 2005 server. We are migrating all of our SSIS packages, SSRDBs, SSASDBs andReporting Services Reports from the 2005 server to the 2008 server. This has been fine but when we try to browse the cube databases through the SSAS browser in BIDS or in Management Studio we get the following error:

The query could not be processed: o XML for Analysis parser: The LocaleIdentifier property is not overwritable and cannot be assigned a new value.

We have tried both restoring a backup of the cube db and importing the db into a new project (in BIDs 2008) and re deploying it. It deploys and processes fine but we still get the error. Any ideas? Are we missing a component somewhere?

Would be really grateful for help in this.
