I noticed from the SQL Server log that every time server restarts (I'm using SQL Server 2008 developer edition) I get an error message into log:

Login failed for user 'machine\sqlaccount'. Reason: Failed to open the explicitly specified database. [CLIENT: <local machine>]

I can see details from the profiler trace and it shows that the application causing is Report Server and the database is master. How should I modify these privileges to get rid of this error?


ReportServer requires some rights in master and msdb, based on the RSExecRole

At some point, these have been lost eg RS account change, server migration etc

This MSDN article shows you how to recreate it
