I have a SSAS instance on my main (home) machine running Win7, DevPC. There is no domain. I'd like to enable users on a virtual machine to connect to the SSAS instance on DevPC via windows authentication.

The trouble is that when I go to add users to the role, the only location that shows up is DevPC, preventing me from adding users from the virtual machine.

What do I need to do get this setup working?

you need to create the same users and passwords on DevPC that are on the VM (or you can setup an active directory and use a Domain if your machine is windows server but I think repeating the users in this case is a lot easier and work on all windows)

You'll need to join DevPC to the domain if you want domain users to show up in the list.

Ahh, the active-directory tag is misleading then. ;) laurennt-pnet has the right of things. – Kara Marfia Aug 1 '10 at 3:47
