Hello All,

I am trying to get reporting services up and running on a Windows Vista machine.  I'm using SQL Server 2005.  I built several reports and when I try and deploy them a RS Login prompt comes up.  I didn't have this on my other machine that was running the reports.  Also, I am using Windows Authentication.  How do I get this to go away??

Thank you for all your help.

Check how you log into the vista machine... for example:

If you were logging in to the domain that the reporting server is on, you probably wouldn't get prompted to login.

Conversely, you say that you are now on a new machine. Is it on the same domain? Are you logging in to the vista machine or are you logging on to the domain when you log on to the vista machine.

I do have admin rights.  I log onto the domain.  It is the same domain and the same domain user as the other system.  I believe I ran into this issue before when it was setup on the first machine.  I thought that all I needed to do was go into IIS and set the security settings for the virtual report folders.  But I don't see the same setup in Vista as I did in XP and Server 2003.

Here is the screen shot of what I was talking about.  This may not be where I should be looking to fix the issue.  But I thought that I remembered changing this before to address a similar issue.  Any ideas?

This might help?
I got this from Brian Welckers Weblog at
http://blogs.msdn.com/bwelcker/archive/2007/03/19/candy-apple-grey-installing-ssrs-and-windows-vista.aspx;


CANDY APPLE GREY (INSTALLING SSRS AND WINDOWS VISTA)
It's a bit tricky to get Reporting Services (including the report server that comes with SQL Express with Advanced Services) to work on Windows Vista. The key is to turn on the right set of IIS components in the "Turn Windows features on or off" tool in the Vista control panel. Here is the list of required IIS features you need to add for Reporting Services to work:

Web Management Tools
IIS 6 Management Compatibility
IIS 6 WMI Compatibility
IIS Metabase and IIS 6 configuration compatibility
World Wide Web Services
Application Development
.NET Extensibility
ASP.NET
ISAPI Extensions
ISAPI Filters
 Common HTTP Features
Default Document
Directory Browsing
HTTP Redirection
Static Content
 Security
Windows Authentication
Note that IIS7 in Vista Home Premium does not include Windows Authentication functionality so it will not work with SSRS.

You will get a compatibility message when you start to install SQL Server 2005. This is to let you know that you will need to install SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 after the installation finishes. You should also read Section 5.5 of the SQL Server 2005 Readme (Reporting Services Considerations for Windows Vista) for known issues and limitations.

what about turning on Integrated Windows authentication?  I read online that is how you fix this issue in server 2003.  How would I do this in Vista?

In IE on XP you go to Tools | Internet Options | Security | Intranet | Custom
Then scroll down to the bottom of the long list of settings and make sure
"Automatic Logon in Intranet only" is selected.

Haven't had the pleasure ;-P of Vista yet so can't help there but the setting should be a million miles away from that.

That IE security setting is already set to that.  I still get the login prompt when I try to deploy a report.

In IIS do you have Basic Authentication checked?

Also I just upgraded a server to SQL Server SP2 and the final step was the "SQL Server 2005 User Provisioning Tool for Vista" which automatically changes some security settings.

May be worth looking at.

Try unchecking it, I think that's what's prompting you for the login.

Maybe a stupid question, but did you restart IIS afterwards?

I'm at a loss to suggest anything else.
I'm fairly certain your issue is in IIS, but it could be Active Directory or Policies affecting it.

None of this areas am I expert in!
Maybe post this in a more security orientated zone?

I'm facing the same problem... I don't see a solution anywhere on the web. I've deployed Reporting services on my home PC, running Windows Vista Ultimate and I can't make it work!!! I Also tried MS SQL 2008 but not luck with it either! What are we missing here?
