Hello I have installed Power BI Report Server and set it up on my local sql server db.

I am succesfullly able to launch my web portal page but I get this error below:

How can i resolve this?? It seems I am logged in with the same account that has the admins rights to the local db itself. Any help on this matter would be great.

 

 

Thanks,

Wajahat Kayani

You might need to run your browser as admin once so that you can assign your user as a content manager on the home folder.

 
  1. Right click on your browser
  2. Then right click again on the browser name
  3. Choose the run as Admin option

     

     

    You may have to do this on the server itself.

     

    You should then be able to access the home folder and you should then be able to click on "Manage Folder" in the top right and add your normal user account as a content manager.

     

    Once this is done you should be able to close the admin browser and access report server with your normal account.
