I am in the progress of setting up permissions for report manager and have come across a couple of issues.

The "Site Settings" has me as a system administrator.
The root folder setting (Home) has me with all the the roles selected.

When my colleague browses the report manager, he can access the folder and site settings and has the ability to create new users.

He also has viability of all reports deployed (even though he is not added as a user to the folder.)

Should my colleague be able see these settings as he is not added as user to any security level???

I have found this link where people have said the security settings are ignored for local admins.

Does anyone know of a way I can get round this issue?
