    Hi All,

    Can u please help me on how to stop asking the credential while opening report manager/ report server  in SSRS 2008.

    I know we can solve this easily in 2005 by setting permission to IIS.  But I don't know how is here?

    I searched lot in google but no success.

    Kindly help me.

    Thanks a lot.

    Based on my understandings, when you access report server or report manager, you get a login prompt multiple times and eventually you get a blank screen.  If so, I suggest to go through the following article, it will tell us how to solve this issue.


    Or when you get a prompt,  please type the username for that server machine and select the checkbox(remember me next time). Then we don't need to type the username multiple times.

    Participant: did you ever end up resolving your issue?
    I've having the same problem... very strange:

    SSRS 2008 R2, in my REPORT MANAGER i have 2 reports that use the same data sources. Report 1 opens fine, no problem. Report 2 ALWAYS prompts for login + pass (everytime) and then opens.
    I understand that there may be issues with permissions but i'm logged on as Admin and one report opens and the other prompts for credentials... Can't figure it out

    Any help please?! Thanks...

    I think you need to disable User account Control settings for your window. Please try below link.
