    Hi there,

    Support for SQL Server 2008 R2 only became available in BPC MS 7.5 SP04

    See [Note 1512045 - Planning and Consolidation 75M SP04 Central Note|]

    Can you access and process the cubes/dims in SSAS?

    Hi Velázquez

    This error is because the OLAP server is unable to connect to the SQL Server. The account running the OLAP service doesn't have sufficient rights to connect to the SQL Server. You can change the AppDef to use credentials which have access to the SQL Server AppSet Database.

    This should resolve your problem.

    Kind Regards
