User does not have required permissions to view Report Manager on SQL 2008 r2

Hi all, We are installing SQL Server 2008 r2 onto a server, and this installation includes Reporting Services. SSRS works, I can deploy reports, use Report Manager, Report Builder, etc., all using my admin privs. The problem is when NON-ADMIN users connect to \\server\reports.  They get the following error: 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. This error is resolved by giving the DOMAIN\user account local admin privs on the server. Granting admin privs is not a solution.  We have accountants and other non-technical people that will use Report Manager and Report Builder.  We can't just give every person admin privs on the production SQL server. I have done a lot of research on the web... I see a results involving earlier versions of SQL Server and Report Manager, but this is 2008 r2 - different webserver, etc. How can I resolve this issue?

How to display the currently logged in user in Report Manager


I'm setting up SSRS security for active directory groups in SSRS 2008 R2--a learning experience for me--and I'm wondering if there's some way to display the logged in user at the top of every page in the SSRS Report Manager.  Is this possible?

Not only would it help me perfect my understanding of role-based security, it seems like it would be useful for the production site, too, like just about every other site does when I'm logged in.


Trouble installing SSRS 2008 R2, XP Pro SP3, can't access Web Service or Report Manager URLs


I found a great thread by Uday titled "SQL 2008 Reporting Services Win XP SP2" and worked through it, but I am still stumped.

I am using port 8080 cause this was default.  I tried changeing to 80, but it didn't help, so changed back.  IIS is using port 80 and is currently stopped.

I see both databases in SQL Server and can query while logged in as Account that is used for the service account.  SSRS is running. 

URL reservations look good in the rsreportserver.config file.  In Native mode.

While in RS Config Manger I can test database connection and it is good.  When I click the webservice URL or the Report Manger URL in the Config Manager I get errors "Web site can not be found" and "Website can not display page"  I just upgraded to IE 8.  Can't figure out what to do next.

When I use httpcfg.exe I see a URL for http://+:8080/ReportServer/   and http://+:80/Reports/.  This could be the problem.  How can I chages seconfd to port 8080?

Any help would be appreciated.



Security Extension - Report Manager unable to authenticate


I am upgrading from 2005 to 2008 r2.  I have the very same exact issue/scenario as described in http://www.go4answers.com/Example/security-extension-report-manager-26934.aspx. I installed CU4 instead of CU3 as the link suggests.

When go to the Report Manager url, I get to the UILogon.aspx page just fine to log on with good credentials, but after I enter Username and Password, I get the following message on the form itself: "Value cannot be null. Parameter name: uriString".  I can get to Report Manager just fine if I logon to the Report Server first and leave it in IE, and then Invoke Report Manager.  I think/hope I am missing a setting in a .config file somewhere, I just can't figure out which one.


Last user permission in SQL server Report Manager overwrite previous permission


I have successfully customized form authentication for SQL Server 2008 reporting services. SQL Server 2008 report manager page is worknig fine and it used database users to do login. Now I found one big problem. If user_1 (normal user) login in report manager, and then keep browser open. At this time, Admin user login report manager at same machine, but open another browser. At this time, when user_1 click any button/link or refresh page, user_1 will have Admin user permission.

Any one has any idea ? what is my problem and  how can I debug it ?

Include a Crystal Report in .NET Web Service for Dynamic In-Memory-Only DataSet



I would like to use Crystal Reports in a .NET web service.  Ultimately I would like to convert my report document to a PDF and then return the PDF as a byte array. 

My .NET DataSet is generated dynamically at run-time.  It consists of four related tables.  Since my DataSet does not have a physical datasource, I created an XML Schema file.  I then added the XML Schema file to the web service project with Add Existing Item. 

A solution for working with a dynamic in-memory DataSet exists for ASP.NET web sites and client-based forms.  I tried to use this method as it is published.  When that didn't work I tried creating the report and XML Schema directly in the web service project, but that also didn't work.


The problem is apparent when you try to set the datasource.......the code bombs on the call to SetDataSource(DataSet) with the message
ex = {"The data source object is invalid."}

Crystal Reports would save me a lot

Issues in GetItemDataSources web service call in 2008 Report Server R2

Hi, I'm using Reporting Services web services endpoint ReportService2005.asmx with 2008 report server R2 and I'm facing some issues in getting the data source names for a report definition using the GetItemDataSources web service. The problem is that the data source names returned are different from the names of the actual data sources on the report server. The report has the following data sources: 0 1 _0 _A Data Source And the names returned by the GetItemDataSources for 2008 report server R2 is: AutoGen_0 AutoGen_1 AutoGen__0 AutoGen__A Data_Source When I make the same calls using a 2005 report server, the names returned are the same as that in the report definition. To summarize, only numeric data source names are changed to "Autogen_<number>"(eg. Autogen_0), data source names beginning with "_" are changed to "Autogen_<data source name>"(eg. AutoGen__A)  and spaces are replaced by an "_".   What is the problem for the data source names returned for 2008 report server R2? Or has there been any change in the way in which report server stores the data source names? Thanks, Kulbhushan Singhal.
