  • Hi matadeen1987,

    Actually, Reporting Services is implemented as a single service that contains a Report Server Web service, Report Manager, and a background processing application that is used for scheduled report processing and subscription delivery. You can run the service under a domain user account or a built-in such as NetworkService account. From your description, it seem you want to change the account to a domain user account, incorrect user account format might be the root cause, could you please have a check and give the result. If it still does not work, you can show us your account and other detail information for us to supply further troubleshoot.

  • When providing the username, you'll need to type the domain name as well. Something like DomainName\UserName

    Hope this helps!
