There are two issues that you will find out when you finish the installation of SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2008 R2:

  1. When you try to access Reporting Services using your IE browser, it will constantly prompt you to enter username and password.
  2. After the successful entry of login details in IE, you will get the following error message:
User ‘Domain\User’ does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed.
