I am trying to configure SSRS on my VM:s via gMSA account which does not seem to work and unable to access the reporting url ( Web Portal URL) link to check configuration.

The requirement is to have services hosted on different VM's than its report server and report server TempDB databases. So on server A and B simply running SSRS services fails when using gMSA during the configuration steps in reporting server configuration utility. I am using same gMSA on 2 other database servers as well.

Error" The report server cannot connect to report server database due to logon failure. User name and password incorrect"

Using setup as mentioned here: Configure a Native Mode Report Server Scale-Out Deployment

Is gMSA supported for scale out or there is something I am missing here?

  • Have you tested your gMSA account? Powershell --> Test-ADServiceAccount your_gMSA

  • Are the Software requirements met? Also, are the other 2 servers you configured the gMSA working fine with that credential?
