DPM2010 Reports fail with insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone


    We are trying out DPM2010 in our domain.

    Installed on W2k8 R2 SP1

    Domain Joined.

    SQL installed Locally by the DPM2010 setup program.


    The DPM seems to work with all the features but the Reporting part.

    When I click a report it opens a browser with this error message:

    The permissions granted to user 'my user name' are insufficient for performing this operation. (rsAccessDenied)

    Why does this happen?

    My user is a domain admin account.

    I found this page on Technet:

    And tried the solution: The DPMR$<MachineName> account may not have the required user rights

    Under my Local Security Policy. and Allow log on locally Properties. My DPMR$<MachineName> is correctly listed. But i cannot find any username called "DPMReport" like it says on technet. But what is that anyway? The user Description of the  DPMR$<MachineName> account is : This account is used by SQL Server Reporting Services to generate DPM reports. And that is correctly listed in my Local Policy.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

  • Hi,

    On that new DPM Server, do you have UAC enabled? If so, would it be possible to disable, reboot the server and see if the problem goes away.

  • This also worked for me in DPM 2012 SP1 

    No reboot required, just re-open IE (reboot if you have multiple users i bet)

    Thank you!
