ok, so I know there are tons of forums on this,but none are helping. I'm using SQL server 2014 and have the report server setup in native mode. I'm trying to get this domain user 'abc' (changed from real login to protect the account, etc) to be able to access the reportserver web url to run reports...i get the rsaccessdenied everytime....the only way around this is if I add the user into the local administrator group, which is not an option. I have no issue at all running the report manager or report web url if I sign into the browser with a user that is in the report server local admin group.
Before you answer, here is what I have tried:
1) UAC turned off on server
2) web url entered as trusted site
3) run IE as admin
4) configured site settings on local admin account from report server as follows:
•site settings have abc user entered as system administrator ( i know this is overboard, but still doesnt work)
•under the actual report folder on the 'home' page, when you choose security, I have abc user as browser, content manager, my reports, publisher, and report builder (once again overkill, but still doesnt work).
5) tried extremes such as adding user into sql database logins as sysadmin, tried creating a new local user group and inserting the abc user into that group and then adding that group to the site settings and report settings, nothing.
here is one strange thing, when i go to the report manager url and sign in as user abc, it gives me the error, but i can see the site settings option at the top and actually click into and see those properties (general, security, schedules) so that tells me the abc user has some sort of rights, but cannot see the 'home' page of the report manager site (and of course cannot see anything on the report server url link, just the permissions error).
any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am running windows server 2012 and installed using the local administrator account. once again, I have no issues navigating any of the urls as long as the user is in the local administrator group.
