We are trying to configure Reporting Services to use a Managed Service Account. The environment is:
Server: Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Reporting Services: SQL Server 2012 (version 11.0.6567.0)
Currently, SSRS runs as a domain service account, but we would like to change to running as an MSA. The SQL Server instance and agent have both been successfully changed to use an MSA.
When I try to change the service account to an MSA, via Reporting Services Configuration Manager, I receive an error:
Microsoft.ReportingServices.WmiProvider.WMIProviderException: The account name is not valid. Specify an account in the form domain\alias.
---> System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x8004021D): Exception from HRESULT: 0x8004021D --- End of inner exception stack trace --- at Microsoft.ReportingServices.WmiProvider.RSWmiAdmin.ThrowOnError(ManagementBaseObject mo) at Microsoft.ReportingServices.WmiProvider.RSWmiAdmin.SetWindowsServiceIdentity(String accountName, SecureString password, Boolean useBuiltinAccount) at ReportServicesConfigUI.WMIProvider.RSReportServerAdmin.SetWindowsServiceIdentity(String accountName, SecureString password, Boolean useBuiltinAccount)
My question is simple:
Has anyone successfully changed the SSRS service account to use a Managed Service Account? If so, how?!
