SCOM Admin to Schedule Reports?

    Question

  • Hello again.  We have a support group that has Operator and Report Operator role access.  They are creating reports for various things they support, and when they tried to schedule a report, the following error appeared:

    A subscription delivery error has occurred. ---> A subscription delivery error has occurred. ---> One of the extension parameters is not valid for the following reason: The account you are using does not have administrator privileges.

    Do you really have to be in the Administrators role to be able to schedule reports?  How are people letting other support groups schedule reports without giving them Admin role access?

    Thanks again,
    Layne

  • Hi Layne,
    In order to provide to schedule reports the group needs to have the "Content Manager" role.

    If you don't want to make the users administrators in the OpsMgr console you can grant this role in SQL Reporting Services. Note, this is obviously going to grant the users rights than just the ability to schedule reports.

    To do this:

    1. open SQL Reporting Services (http://yourserver/reports)
    2. click on the Properties tab
    3. click the Edit link next to the group named "{2537B367-6D74-4110-B0B5-1F51C1B1B09E}" (this is the Operations Manager Report Operators group)
    4. check the box next to Content Manager
    5. click Apply

    Now the Report Operators should be able to schedule reports.

  • Hi Chris, thanks for the answer.  You say that "Content Manager" grants the users more rights than just the ability to schedule reports.  What additional rights would those be?

  • Hi Layne,

    Not exactly the same but similar issue lies with me.I can run report manually,but cannot schedule report  from console.But I can schedule reports from

    http://servername/reports.Kindly note that SQL database is on different server.It looks like when report is scheduled SCOM console is not

    communicating with SQL server to run report,However subscriptions are getting displayed.Is there any thing  am missing...?
