Running SQL 2008 RS2

I have a user that is a member os SYSADMIN in SQL Server.

1) When I connect to the Reporting Server in MMC, I cannot add users to the different roles.
2) When I log onto http://<computer name>/ReportServer it says I do not have the required permission.

What level of permission is required?

    you need to add the account as adminstrator for the server.

    Regarding the 2nd query, do check what a/c is provided in the reporting service configuration manager to connect the service to reportserver database.
