Here is SSIS packaga that creates backup for each database in one SSAS instance. You can specify backup folder and server name by passing SSIS package variables through command line:

dtexec /FILE "C:\DTSX_Scripts\DWBackupOLAPDBs.dtsx" /Set \package.variables[BackupLocation].Value;c:\NewBackupLocation\ /Set \package.variables[SSASServerName].Value;NewSSASServerName

Use it at your own risk.

You should try it helps to backup SSAS and relational databases also you can upload to the cloud. And you don't have to pay anything, it's free.

Cool little package, thanks!

The script in the package doesn't seem to work on a 64-bit 2005 SSAS instance but there is a solution: Run the package in 32-bit mode ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\DTS\Binn\dtexec.exe" /FILE "D:\SSIS\Packages\BackupAllOLAPDBs.dtsx" /MAXCONCURRENT " -1 " /CHECKPOINTING OFF /REPORTING E)

Also note that you cannot simply use the /x86 switch (which is the same as enabling the 32-bit option in the SQL job in SSMS 2008) in SQL Server 2005 because unlike in SQL Server 2008 there are 2 separate DTEXEC commands --one each for 32-bit and 64-bit. In SQL Server 2008 there is only one DTEXEC and it takes the /x86 switch, which makes the package execute in 32-bit context.
