MS Analysis Services 2005?


My group is migrating from a MS Analysis Services 2000 install to a 2005 install. I attempted to create a new connection to this database but after installing the OLE DB drivers on both the server and my workstation, the 'MS Analysis Services 2005' option isn't showing up in the list. I tried using the 2000 entry but get the error:

Error DBD:[BusinessObjects115.OLAPI.BrowseObject.1] : Failed to initialize (Cannot connect to the server 'xxxxxx'. The server is either not started or too busy.)

My workstation is running SP4 of the client tools and our server is on SP3. I'm willing to upgrade our server to SP4 but I'd like to know this will solve the problem before I upgrade.

I can't contact BO support right now because the new account they created for me doesn't work (I get 'not authorized' when I try to create a support ticket and the 'edit' button isn't enabled when I try to give myself authorization) and I spent 45 minutes on hold before giving up and posting here.
