Setup: SQL Server 2012 SP2 clustered running on a VM

Twice in the last two we have encountered a problem processing our dimensions and cube via an SSIS package and browsing the same via SSMS (or indeed any BI client tool). The error message is:
Processing Dimensions Error: Either the user <Domain\User> does not have access to the database or the database does not exist.

Neither of those possible reasons is the case and doing some research, it sounded similar to the issue described at http://sqljoe.wordpress.com/2011/03/22/ssas-errors-in-the-metadata-manager-the-dimension-with-id-of-xxx-referenced-by-the-xxx-cube-does-not-exist/ so we followed the steps listed in that post to resolve the issue.

Everything was okay for a while and then the problem happened again.

This time we had not done any deployments of the cube (one of the suggested causes in the link above is a high number of SSAS solution deployments). Again, we followed the steps to resolve the issue and we've been fine since then, but my questions is:

Has anyone else encountered this error and if so, what did you do to resolve it?

I'm wondering whether it could have anything to do with running on a virtual cluster, but having said that, the environment has not changed in months...
