Hi,

I have SSRS 2005 SP3 CU6 installed on Windows 2003 32bit IIS machine. When I try to open the ReportServer site (http://localhost:8001/reportserver) or Reports site (http://localhost:8001/reports), I am getting the below error:

HTTP Error 401.1 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

I have tried enabling NTLM also using ADSUtil. But no luck. Can someone help me on this?

Please verify NTFS permissions on SSRS folders, by default:
%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.\Reporting Services\ReportServer
%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.\Reporting Services\ReportManager

Check if groups like following have access (read, execute):
SQLServer2005ReportingServicesWebServiceUser$<servername>$<instancename>
SQLServer2005ReportServerUser$<servername$<instancename>


Recheck SSRS configuration in SSRS configuration manager.

I have already checked and given those groups  (and the application pool and the SSRS service account directly also) update permissions on these folders. But no luck.

Run following code in cmd:
 
cd C:\Inetpub\Adminscripts
cscript adsutil.vbs get w3svc/NTAuthenticationProviders

Open in new window


When output is like The parameter "NTAuthenticationProviders" is not set run following:
 
adsutil.vbs set w3svc/NTAuthenticationProviders "NTLM"

Open in new window

I have told already in my initial thread that I have enabled NTLM in this way. It didn't work for me.

Is this fresh install or it just stopped from working? I can't recall your initial thread.

It is a fresh install. It seems I had to forgot to provide the application pool account with ASP.NET permissions. Once I gave that, it worked.
