The target principal name is incorrect while trying to connect to Analysis Services server

A sql server had been setup for testing purposes but never been used with SSAS. The service was installed. Today when trying to connect to the AS server I received this error message:

The target principal name is incorrect.
The solution is to use th IP address of the server or the fully qualified domain name. e.g. instead of using ‘SERVER01’, use ‘’
