SSRS - Users can't run reports

I have set up SSRS. I have written the sp's and SQL functions to build the reports and they run just fine.

However, I'm logging into Windows as an administrator. The standard users cannot run the reports. Initially they couldn't even log into the reports home. I set up the permissions so that the Domain Users group could get access to reports. This didn't fully work until I actually allowed the Domain Users group to access the main folder in SSRS. Now they can see all the reports. All users on the domain are part of the Domain Users group. When they run them they get an error.

"An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
    Cannot create a connection to data source "DataSource1". (rsErrorOpeningConnection)
        For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine or enable remote errors"


Firstly, where do I enable remote errors? I've been through the reports server configuration and there is nothing I can find that enables remote errors. The server itself has no IIS instance running on it.

If I go into each report and check the security settings on it, it is inheriting from the parent folder. The security settings on the site are:

Domain Users - Site User

Under the folder settings:

Domain User: Browser which says the users "May view folders, reports and subscribe to reports"

Each report has security settings which inherit from the folder so what am I missing?

All I want is that anyone that can log onto the URL and is part of the Domain Users group in Windows, I would like them to be able to run the reports. It's really quite simple.

If you need more info, please ask.

I fixed this stupid problem myself in the end.

Instead of using Windows Authentication I set up the datasource to use SQL Authentication with a SQL user. All datasources now use this logon and the problem has gone away.
