  • Hi Thomas,

    This is just a general error message, it is hard to say what is the root cause. Could you please being more specific about your issue? Does this error show up when you open the report server or report manager? Or the error display in a integrated model with SharePoint? Detail information is a big help for us supply further assistance. Thanks for your understanding.

    In addition,Restrictions on using built-in accounts apply to some deployment topologies of Reporting Services that include a report server running in SharePoint integrated mode. The following combination of factors will result in service account requirements:

    • Report Server is integrated with a SharePoint farm comprising more than one computer.

    • The report server and SharePoint Central Administration web site run on separate computers.

    In this scenario, if the Report Server service runs under a built-in account such as NetworkService, the Grant database access option in SharePoint Central Administration will not work correctly. Consequently, accessing any Reporting Services feature through a SharePoint site will result in this error.

    Choose either of the following approaches to avoid this error:

    • On the computer that hosts the report server, continue to run the Report Server service as NetworkService and add the built-in account, such as NT_AUTHORITY\NetworkService to the WSS_WPG Windows group.

    • Configure the service account to run under a domain user account as follows:

      1. Start the Reporting Services Configuration tool and connect to the report server.

      2. On the Service Account page, click Use another account, enter a domain user account, and click Apply.

      3. Click Web Service Identity, for Report Server, click New, type an application Restart the Report Server service.

  • Hi Challen,

    Thanks for the information.

    This error shows when i try to login into Reporting Services from SSMS using Windows Authentication. It also follows me when i try to login into SQL Server Surface Area Configuration Tool => Reporting Services Tab => Enable Windows Authentication. It is also intelligent and is seen in teams, follows when i try to browse either ..\Reports or ..\ReportServer virtual directories.
