SQL 2016 - Enterprise Edition Windows 2016 Reporting Services runs on domain account (SPN registered for new host header)

Problem: When adding a host header in Reporting Services Configuration tool, like reports.server.net, users need to login to the reporting services. When I remove the host header and try to connect to hostname/reports I do not get prompted for user/password.

Fact: - When i use the default site address http://servername/Reports, before adding a new host header, the site opens up without login prompt

What I've done:

I can't seem to add a host header without beening forced to login, despite above.

Anyone been here?

  • What browser are you using to access the report server? Is the host header FQDN the same domain as the machine you're accessing the report server from?

  • Any browser. Host Header FQDN is a diffren't domain.
