I'm trying set up an execution account following the steps here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms156302.aspx
I follow these steps:
- Start the Reporting Services Configuration tool and connect to the report server instance you want to configure.
- On the Execution Account page, select Specify an execution account.
- Type the account and password, retype the password, and then click Apply.
I've tried the following accounts but always getting the same error below. administrator, ASPNET, SYSTEM. I tried these accounts alone, and also with prefixing them with LOCALMACHINE/ or computer name/
(One problem is I'm not sure the passwords are for the second two accounts.)
Here is the error I get:
ReportServicesConfigUI.WMIProvider.WMIProviderException: The account name is not valid. Specify an account in the form domain\alias. at ReportServicesConfigUI.WMIProvider.RSReportServerAdmin.SetUnattendedExecutionAccount(String userName, String password)
I'm on Windows XP pro, and I'm not on a domain, it's just this one computer. Here's my system info:
Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 9.00.3042.00 Microsoft Analysis Services Client Tools 2005.090.3042.00 Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0.50727.42
