Hi,
do you have Active Directory / Domain Users  
OR
local Windows Accounts?

SQL Server Analysis Services stores only the SID (Security Identifier) of all user configurations (roles,...) - and the above mentioned error means, that SSAS could not find the SID for the provided user name.
If you use domain accounts, have you tried to add the user like "Domain\user" ?
