SSRS security on W2012 server

I just installed SQL 2012 onto a new W2012 server along with SSRS. Today when I was on that server and went to http://myserver/Reports it tells me i do not have sufficient access to view reports. Now I am logged on as the same domain admin that installed SQL the day before. If I go into SSRS Configuration and Report URL and click on the link there SSRS fires up just fine. I discovered that I had to add the specific domain admin user under Folder Setting and Site Settings in order to get the page to appear in IE. Why did I have to do that? Why wasn't the domain admin account that had installed SQL not part of the BUILTIN\Administrator group in SSRS?

That's normal behavior.  For each new installation you need to give the admins actual admin rights on the SSRS site and Home folder for it to behave "normal".  I wish Microsoft had decided to automatically do this for us during the installation but apparently they didn't...
