I have a reporting services server environment in a windows server 2008 R2 . I am developing in windows 7 using report builder 3. I am able to load and save the reports but not to preview them. I'm getting this message: Failed to preview report... insufficient privilege to user "P423432\Steven". In the configuration roles in reporting server, the user that I use for developing has all the permissions checked. What could be happening with it?
Thanks a lot!

anyone knows something about it? I'm getting crazy! – Steven May 2 '11 at 17:17

The credentials look like you PC account credentials. If you are in an AD domain, the credentials should be "domain\steven" where domain is your AD domain.

Thanks for your answer but Its not the solution because the credentials are right. Remember I can load the reports, and even save. Its something more about autorization, But I dont know What. Steven. – Steven Apr 27 '11 at 11:54
Take a look at the IIS logs for entries regarding the reportingserver URL. Perhaps that will give you a lead. – uSlackr Apr 27 '11 at 20:30
