Hi,

I am learning SSIS, SSAS and creating first cube using online articles. (http://sql-bi-dev.blogspot.ca/2010/08/creating-first-cube-in-ssas-2008.html  
and
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/ee677579.aspx
and
downloaded adventureworks from : http://msftdbprodsamples.codeplex.com/releases
the adventureworksDW for SQL Server 2008)

my visual studio solution explorer 2008 does not display dimension and cube nodes?

I have AdventureWorksDW installed. I can see data connection, data source view, packages  and miscellaneous nodes only.
I have created the data souce connection, the data source view correctly.
But I do not see the dimension and cube nodes?

how can they be added?

thanks

Did you built the cube(s) first by using knowledge from the first two links you posted above?

If you did that already try use SSMS then connect to your Analysis Server first and check permissions/process the cube(s)

I noticed cubes option is available in SSAS only and not SSIS. Right?
