Validating SSRS settings in AX 2012 fails

Tonight one of my colleagues called me having issues with validating the SSRS setup for an old AX 2012 R3 environment. Unfortunately it had been many years since I even touched a 2012 server which meant I had to turn to my trusted advisor… Google 🙂

The error he got was this:
“Make sure that SQL Server Reporting Services is configured correctly. Verify the Web Service URL and Report Manager URL configuration in the SQL Reporting Services Configuration Manager.”


The problem is caused by UAC end there are 2 “solutons”

  1. Turning off UAT (which is absolutely NOT recommended).
    Error when validate settings in Report servers by any admin account which is not account used to install the AX reporting services extensions. – Microsoft Dynamics AX Forum Community Forum
  2. Running the AX client as Administrator. To do this right-click the AX 2012 Client (it has to be the client and not the .axc file) and slect “Run as Administrator”
    AX2012R2 SSRS Validation error as make sure the SQL Server Reporting Services is configured correctly – Microsoft Dynamics AX Community

That is it for today
