I have some troubles connecting to an Analysis service from my client. I can connect, but i can not see any databases. I can connect on the server and see/create database there. But when i try from my client, it says user is not permitted to create object. The object explorer in management studio, the connection icon is white, and not with a green arrow as i think it should be.

I probably just need some generel direction where to look for solving this problem. Thanks.

If you're just trying to browse AS 2005 databases from Management Studio, setting "ReadDefinition" permission may help, as discussed in this thread:

cube browsing permissions - what am I doing wrong


Adding the Read Definition permission to the database solved my problem -- users can browse cube from SSMS.
