"Reporting Services Login" prompt deploying to SharePoint site with forms authentication
Posted on 2010-11-10
We have a Sharepoint 2007 site that was recently converted from Windows Authentication to Forms Authentication. The site seems to be working fine.
We use Reporting Services 2008 in SharePoint integrated mode for reports on the site.
We are trying to deploy a new release of reports from Visual Studio, but are getting a "Reporting Services Login" prompt. No matter what credentials we put in it keeps coming back and we cannot deploy.
The site has been "extended" so that we have a web with Window Authentication for Office integration etc, but if I use that site to try to deploy to, it says that it must be the Default zone (which is the Forms Authentication site).
Here are some additional facts about the configuration:
In the Reporting Services Configuration Manager.
we have a dedicated domain user as the service account.
The WebService URL has Virtual Directory as "ReportServer" so the domain shows up as http://www.domain.com/ReportServer.
The Database is setup as SharePoint Integrated.
Report Manager URL is set as "Reports" so the domain is shown as http://www.domain.com/Reports
We have specified an Execution account which is a Dedicated Windows user account
In Visual Studio for the deployment settings we have:
TargetDataSourceFolder: http://www.domain.com/SQLDataConnections which is a data library folder in SharePoint
TargetReportFolder: http://www.domain.com/SQLReports which is a document library in SharePoint
TargetServerURL: http://www.domain.com/ (Since this is a SharePoint site which is using SharePoint Integrated mode this should be correct and has always worked in the past)
Our data connections use SQL authentication.
Now, the odd part: These setting all work on a dev machine which is configured IDENTICALLY. IIS, the site, reporting services, etc has exactly the same settings...
