Read-Write Domain Controller access?

According to Power BI Report Server requires Read-Write Domain Controller access.  Why is this?


  • Read-only domain controller (RODC)
    While the report server can be installed in an environment that has a Read-Only Domain Controller (RODC), Reporting Services needs access to a Read-Write Domain Controller to function properly. If Reporting Services only has access to a RODC, you may encounter errors when trying to administer the service.
