SQL2005 report manager does not show all tabs (new folder, new data source, upload file,report builder)

SSRS runs under window 2008, iis7 and I do have full admin right to the server but I can not get these tabs to show (http://localhost/reports)??

Are you trying to access RM directly from the server, is UAC turned on, and (if so) did you run IE as an administrator?

I am not sure What UAC means ... I tried to run the RM from a client XP machine (http://servername/reports) and from the server (http://localhost/reposts) and got the same result. I even connect to the report server where it stores the report and try to run it from there but I got the message 'access denied', can not create datasource, new report, etc...(Please see attached image)

I am pretty sure it is the permission problem but don't know where to set it
Megan BrooksSQL Server ConsultantCommented:
UAC is the User Account Control feature in Windows Server 2008, Vista, and Windows 7. It will block your administrative access unless you run IE with administrator privileges. You would typically run into this only if you were trying to access RM locally on the web server. There might be issues, though, with remote IE clients as well if they are running on an OS that has UAC and if UAC is turned on. I finally just turned it off on my development PCs because of all the issues, but I leave it on on the Internet-facing web server.

Since your remote client is running XP, UAC would not be an issue there. If the web/report server is running with UAC, though, you might try logging on to that machine and accessing RM locally with IE, but running IE with admin privileges.

First, though, run IE locally on the report server the way you did before. If the status bar shows "Protected mode on" then UAC has disabled your admin privileges and you won't see much in the RM UI. If that is the case then exit IE, right click an IE shortcut (such as the one in the Quick Launch bar, or find IE in the Start menu), and select "Run as administrator." If that lets you see all the tabs (Protected Mode should now be "off") then at least you know that RM itself is working.

It is still a mystery to me. I finally had to reinstall the report server and redeployed the reports (because of time constraint).
