SSRS Reporting Services IE Issues

SSRS Prompt for username and password in IE
This is for IE9 with Windows 7 operating systems
1. Open Internet Explorer (IE9) and from the tools menu, choose Internet Options
2. From the Security Tab, choose Local intranet and click on Sites
3. Click on Advanced button
4. Type in localhost in Add this website text field and click on Add button (Un-tick the box Require server verification (https:) for all sites in this zone)

There are two issues that you will find out when you finish the installation of SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2008 R2:
1. When you try to access Reporting Services using your IE browser, it will constantly prompt you to enter username and password.
2. After the successful entry of login details in IE, you will get the following error message:
User ‘Domain\User’ does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed.

1. From Start > All Programs > Internet Explorer, Right Click and choose Run as administrator
2, Enter the Reporting Services URL: http://localhost/Reports_SQLExpress
3. Running as administrator will allow you to have access to Site Settings. Click on it
4. You will see the General Site Settings page
5. Click on Security from the left side menu and choose New Role Assignment 6. Add the username or Group that you want to grant permission to and select the appropriate role
7. Now go to Home page and click on Folder Settings. Add the username or Group that you want to grant permission to the main Home page
8. All done now. You can normally open IE and it will work without an AUC error. You can also create Folders within the Home page and restrict access to specific users.

Configure the Unattended Execution Account
1.Start the Reporting Services Configuration tool and connect to the report server instance you want to configure.
2.On the Execution Account page, select Specify an execution account.
3.Type the account and password, retype the password, and then click Apply
