Power BI Report server - Issue with deploying power bi report



I am trying Power BI Report server, configuration done and able to access the report server urla s well.


However when I try to save/deploy the pbix file into the server I am getting the below error

"an error while attempting to save the report to power bi" Please find below the atatched screenshots as well.







Did you ever figure out the issue? This started happening today on one of my report servers, but not the other 3. Only seems to be affecting .PBIX files 

Hi, we fixed this issue two days ago on our on-prem PBIRS (1.17.8552.27722 May 2023). You should better add your service account running the PBIRS service to the local Administrators group. A really quick fix.

@v-qiuyu-msft  sorry for that 


here is the lien!Ao41zm5ScQN5hCrFkgoagGgVa5Sd   


should be around 11:24

I am having a very similar issue.  


I can successfully upload a Report Builder report, however am unable to upload a Power BI report both through Power BI Desktop (SSRS) and from the Upload button on the Power BI Reporting Server.



I do receive the following in the logs however....



2017-05-30 13:13:14.3514|FATAL|1|Could not start PBIXSystem.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. ---> System.Net.HttpListenerException: Access is denied
