After installing SSRS! You can’t manage Reports site


It’s just a quick tip after you’ve successfully installed SQL Server Reporting Services on Windows Vista or Windows 7, you go to http://{Server-Name}/reports which redirects you to http://{Server-Name}/reports/Pages/Folder.aspx you find out that you can’t control anything and the site looks like this

Don’t worry what you should do is to, right click on Internet Explorer or your favorite browser then run as administrator and retype your SSRS Reports site URL http://{Server-Name}/reports you’ll find you can manage everything as you see

To not open your browser as administrator everytime you manage your Reports you should add your current user as Content Manager or as you wish. From Properties-> New Role Assignment -> Type the username of current user -> Select role -> OK

Open it without run as administrator it will look like as you want.

    Great Tip, but I think this can be configured by set the execution account in “Reporting Services Configuration Manager” and the Service Account as well
