Assuming SSRS, I've run into this before, and the root cause was that the new users didn't have privs on the SP or T-SQL that was the data source for the report.  To fix, we had to make sure all T-SQL was removed from the report and written as SP's, then grant privs for everyone on those SP's.

If you want your reports to be visible to "absolutely" everybody, you add "DOMAIN\Authenticated Users" to your security settings. All users who are authenticated in the domain will then be able to access the site + the reports that inherit this security setting.

I received an error:

The user or group name 'DOMAIN\Authenticated Users' is not recognized

Did you replace the word "DOMAIN", with the name of your actual domain.

This group should exist in your domain, can you check with your domain admin to make sure you're pointing to the right group?

Here's a link that explains the "Authenticated Users" group.

Sorry about that, the group name is actually "NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users"

I apologize for the confusion.
