Installing SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services Side-by-Side with SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services

You can install SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services as a named instance side-by-side with the default instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services. Because SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services does not support named instances, the SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services instance must always be the default instance in a side-by-side installation.

You can also migrate existing SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services databases to the SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services database format while leaving the existing databases intact.
