Sql Server Report on Asp.net


When I am trying to show Reports on .Aspx page form Virtual Directory it is showing this error "The permissions granted to user 'NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE' are insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied)" . I have used ReportViewer control and VS 2008,  it is working fine at local host.

Thank you.

You will need to setup proper credentials for your asp.net site to access the reporting server. Is the SQL Server reporting server on the same machine as the asp.net web server where your page will be hosted? If not, you will need your report viewer control to essentially "log in" to the report server on an account that is granted permission to access reports through SQL Server report server's configuration.

Here's a sample of how you can specify separate credentials for your reports.

Add a new class to your asp.net and set it up lik the code below. Then in your web.config, you will need to add the following properties to your <appSettings> section, replacing with appropriate values:

<add key="MyReportViewerUser" value="MyUser"/>
    <add key="MyReportViewerPassword" value="MyUserPassword"/>
    <add key="MyReportViewerDomain" value="MyUserDomain"/>

Finally, on the page that contains your report viewer control, do the following in something like the load event of the page:
ReportViewer1.ServerReport.ReportPath = "yourReportPath"
ReportViewer1.ServerReport.ReportServerUrl = "yourReportServerUrl"
ReportViewer1.ServerReport.ReportServerCredentials = New MyReportServerCredentials()

Hopefully this gets you on the right track.
