SSRS 2008 connectivity

Hi All,

As I understand, SSRS 2008 does not depend on IIS anymore.

But I was not able to connect to SSRS reports page : http://servername/reports (from outisde the server with servername) When I installed IIS, it started working.

Also, from locally when I try http://localhost/reports or http://servername/reports, I get below error: User 'DOMAIN\LOGINNAME' does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed.

I am the admin on the server and Builtin\Admins is the sysadmin on SSRS. I have added the SSRS website URL to Trusted sites.

Questions: 1. Why dependency on IIS still?

  1. Why the error mentioned above? Answer: The UAC error was resolved when I open the SSRS URL with RUN AS ADMIN in IE.

However, I am still not clear about the dependency of SSRS 2008 R2 on IIS?

Thanks in advance...

Thank you in advance,

SQL Server 2008 R2 Reporting Services is not dependent on IIS. It utilizes [http.sys][1], which is a Window Server API process. I have it running in production and on VMs I run at home without IIS installed.

What issue you had, I do not know and since you installed IIS it is probably a mute point now.

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
