To the SQL forum readers.

From our SQL server 2005 Reporting Server page
the tabs for Security and Site Settings are missing.

I am logged in as Domain administrator on the server and also tried as a local domain user (myself), also an Administrator.

I have unticked Anonymous access from Reports Virtual directory IIS setting and ticked it back to no avail.
I have tried both http://localhost/reports and http://<servername>/reports and both have got the Security links missing.

What could be wrong?
I have attached the screenshot.

BJ

I believe you need to be a local admin of the server that SSRS resides on. Anyone who is a member of the local admin group should be have default management of report manager.

Another means to gain site wide admin access to report manager is to ask a colleague who has system admin rights in report manager to grant you system admin permissions as well (under site settings in report manager.)

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the reply.

I am logged on as Domain Administrator on the server (highest possible credentials).
Also tried logging on as local Administrator on ("this computer") server.

In both logins I can't still see the security tabs on either http://localhost/reports or even http://<servername>/reports.

My own username login is also "admin group" + DBA rights so I would think that itself should show up the security tabs.
I am the only one who uses this server and created all the SSRS reports.

I restarted the SSRS services but still no joy.

I need the security tabs to restrict the view/content of some of the reports to some end-users on roll out.

Anything else I could try to get it back?
Thanks,
BJ
