I have a SQL 2005 Reporting Server.  Users are unable to view the home page and therefore no reports are available.
I have alrready goine into the SRS configuration and enabled Domain Users the browser right.  When users get to the site they get a password prompt.  When they enter Domain\User and pasword, they stil do not get in. Error 401.3 is displayed on pages.

In IIS seucrity is set to use Windows Auth.
users PC has the internal server listed in the Intranet sites.  I thought this would stop the authentication request and pass the current user on to the IIS Intranet SRS box.
On Reports home, Domain USers has browser rights.

Error when user goes to site:
HTTP Error 401.3 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to an ACL set on the requested resource.
Internet Information Services (IIS)


Ideas?

New information. I had a encryption key issue. While working on it I guess I whacked it. I've corrected that error.  Not i get the following:
Users can view the site and folders. Report names are visible. When accessing a report the following error is displayed:
 
The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized.

The parent folder of the report has browser rights for domain users. The report is set to inherit from folder.  Seems like the report should display.

Ideas?

have you tried to view your reports from the same domain? from a different computer of course, but from the same domain, just specifying a user name or a user group? also don't forget that you should have to setup  your data sources as they have their own securities.

Yes. Tried from a machine not in the domain. I still get the 401: Unauthorized.
Data sources are configured seperately and seem to ve fine.

you won't know about data source unless you can run your report as there is no way to check 'tm other then by running a report...

about running from the same domain. if you go to your report server root (e.g. http://report_server_name/Reports/Pages/Folder.aspx) and click properties, what are you seeing there? (you should see security settings and who's authorized to see reports).

Problem resolved. Had to create new virtual directories using RS Config Tool.  The service account was missing, only way to get back on this server was to make new virtual directories.  Once done, and app pools re-assigned, server is working.
