Does not want to provide Authentication between domains for reports, prompting for credentials
Does not want to provide Authentication between domains for reports, prompting for credentials.
In a scenario where the User domain is different then the IIS Server�s domain, then the Domain Users group from the User domain will need to be added to the IIS Servers� Web Reports Author and Web Reports Administrator group. If possible, the group should also be added to the IIS Servers local Users group, so that it can access the registry (which Web Reports needs).
Prompts are caused by insufficient credentials to access the application, either that they were not transmitted by the browser, or IIS has refused the current set of credentials based on the contents of ACL on the application directory.
It has been noted in some cases where the prompt is being caused by settings on Client browsers. On default browser settings, as long as Web Reports is in the Intranet zone, the credentials should be transmitted correctly. It can be checked by noting the icon in the lower left corner of IE that indicates the security zone. The important setting here is the security settings for zone under User Authentication/Logon - this needs to be Automatic logon only in Intranet zone. If this setting was set to Prompt for username and password, then there would always be a prompt presented. Some administrators may be tempted to disable automatic logon because it can be a potential security threat. It is always possible that a group policy is doing this to the client browsers as well.
