We are currently using a Windows 2008 R2 Web Server running IIS 7.0.  We have an application written by a third party vendor in C#.net ver 2.0 and ASP.net.  The application uses a seperate SQL 2008 R2 Report server to generate reports.  The application has been configured to run in a seperate application pool called demo in classic mode.  Whenever we try to run a report we get the error message

The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized.

Does anyone have any idea what may be causing this problem?  Any help is greatly appreciated.

On the applications application pool. Change the credentials to make use of a domain account. I think it is set to Network Services by default. Then ensure that the domain account use sufficient permissions within the reporting services.

It is also possible that you need to register ASP.NET 2 on the server for IIS7.
%SYSTEMROOT%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_regiis.exe -ir
