SSRS Report Server Settings Validation Error- AX 2012 R3 CU8

06 Mar


I’m trying to validate  report server setup of a client and got the error below
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.



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?


After some troubleshooting, it turns out UAC was not turned off. I am running on MS Windows 8.1.

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.
