In Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, if i login as an user with admin rights in both AX and SQL reporting services and in AX, under System administration, Setup, Business intelligence, Reporting Services, Report servers after i click "Validate settings", i receive the following error.
"Make sure that SQL Server Reporting Services is configured correctly. Verify the Web Service URL and Report Manager URL configuration in the SQL Reporting Services Configuration Manager."
If i login as a user that was used to install the reporting services extensions and deployed the reports and ran the "Validate settings", the settings will be validated as correct.
In reporting services report manager site, i have already granted the AX-Admins AD group as System Administrator under site settings, Home folder settings and DynamicsAX folder with "Browser, Content Manager, DynamicsAXBrowser, My Reports, Publisher, Report Builder" roles.
AX-Admins AD group is also member of administrators in windows. UAC had already been disabled. What did i miss?
Do you have clustered environment??
Are you sure you are using the same AOS server session when logging in using different users.
Please also post down the actual error in the info log and the any errors in Event viewer log
After some troubleshooting, it turns out UAC was not turned off. I am running on MS Windows Server 2012.
UAC has to be turned off via registry by changing the DWORD "EnableLUA" from 1 to 0 in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system". You will get a notification that a reboot is required. After the reboot, UAC is disabled.
After UAC is disabled, the issue is resolved.
Many thanks, this was correct and very helpful.
Many thanks, very helpful.
You do not have to disable the UAC and lower the overall security of the system. Just right click the AX client and start as an administrator. Even better assign your account the proper permission in Reporting Services
More background info: This issue comes only when the AX client is running in the same box as the reporting server. UAC is working (more or less) by removing every permission from your token that has been granted by being a local admin unless you run your code "as administrator". The standard installation only admins have the content manager right in the RS so the AX client will not have the necessary permissions.
Run as administrator to your AX application
