  • Hi imughal,

    From the error message, it seems like an permission issue.

    The domain account used by the Claims to Windows Token Service needs to be granted the following rights through the Local Security Policy:

    1. Act as part of the operating system

    2. Impersonate a client after authentication

    3. Log on as a service

    You can find these settings under Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment.

    Refer to the following article:

    Best Regards,

    Lisa Chen

  • Hi,

    Claim to windows token service is disabled. i started it and running with local system account.

    i have addedd spsetup, spfarm and pwadataaccess account under your given user rights options. also give them all level admin rights at SQL and OS.

    followed link :  to configure project server reports with sharepoint

    BUT still getting same error.  I am using SharePoint 2013 and SQL Server 2014.

    Please guide how to fix it.
