How to: Install Analysis Services Side-by-Side with an Earlier Version

You can install SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services side-by-side with an existing instance of SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services or of SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services.

When you do a side-by-side installation with SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services, you must install SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services as a named instance because SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services does not support named instances. If you later remove the default instance of SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services, you can make an instance of SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services the default instance by using the Analysis Services Instance Rename tool. For more information, see How to: Rename an Instance of Analysis Services.

When you do a side-by-side installation with SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services, you must install SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services as a uniquely named instance

Important noteImportant
