I have an installation of SSRS 2008 that is exhibiting some very odd behavior with regards to authentication and permissions.
I have SSRS installed on a box called SERVER1 and I'm a local admin on the box and an Administrator on the SSRS instance. This box has an IP address of 188.8.131.52
When I go to the Report Manager URL, I see everything I should (Home, Site Settings, etc.) I'm able to go in and set up security and create folders and everything.
What's odd is that if I use the IP address instead of the server name in the Report Manager URL, I get to the home page but there is nothing displayed, only Home, My Subscriptions, and Help. There are no report folders visible and the options available to
admins aren't visible.
One thing that may shed some light on things: if I do a ping -a on the IP address, it resolves to the host name. If I ping the host name, I get back a reply from ::1:
I have no idea why permissions would differ between a host name and an IP address if they're the same server??
Any insight would be appreciated!A. M. Robinson
