I installed SQL server 2008 R2 on windows server 2008. During installation there was an error "MSSQLSERVEROLAPService could not start" but the installation continued and I was able to complete without any other issues.
When I open the SQL Server configuration manager and try to run the "SQL Server Analysis Services" service it stops automatically , giving the error message "The request failed or the service did not respond in a timely fashion.Consult the event log or other applicable error logs for details" . But there is no log to be found for this exception.
Did a google search to see that lot of other folks had the same issue and posted couple of suggestions which seemed to have worked for them.
Clear the application log in event viewer and restart the service.
Add SYSTEM to the local administrator group and restart the service.
I tried both the suggestions and it still did not work out. Has anyone had the same issue or suggestion how this issue could be resolved . Any input would be highly appreciated.
