Hi there,

First post for me here.

I've just upgraded from 2008 R2 Express to 2008 R2 Enterprise in order to work with some cubes in Analysis Services. I now have two instances of SQL server, SQLEXPRESS (Express) and SQLENT (Enterprise).

During installation, I made sure analysis services was selected and the service now appears in the config manager - great. However, when I try to connect to it from SSMS I run into trouble - 'Analysis Services' isn't available in the server type drop-down in the 'connect to server' dialogue, rather I only have "Database Engine" and "SQL Server Compact".

Does this mean I have to uninstall the whole lot and start again with just one instance of the Enterprise version?

Additional complication in that I can't just detach (from Express) and re-attach (to Enterprise) my existing DBs as it's complaining that Express is a newer version than Enterprise. I've used the 'import and export data' wizard to copy one or two, but have about ten left to get through - is there a quicker way to do this?

For bonus points, how to I restore an .abf file to analysis services?

Thanks all,

Stuart

It might be that you're using the Express client tools. Did you reinstall the client tools as well when you upgraded?
