Fix SCCM Upgrade Breaks SSRS with UserTokenSIDs contains an error ConfigMgr

Fix SCCM Upgrade Breaks SSRS with UserTokenSIDs contains an error ConfigMgr. Recently, We had a discussion in the Facebook Group for SCCM ConfigMgr Professionals about the SSRS reporting issue after upgrading from SCCM.

Some of the group members are reported the following issue/error. However, I didn’t find this issue in any of my environments (I’ve 3 different environments), and the SSRS reports are working fine after ConfigMgr 2012 R2 upgrades. So I don’t know the exact reason for the following error in some environments.

System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: The DefaultValue expression for the report parameter ‘UserTokenSIDs’ contains an error: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.

Initially, I suspected that there was something to do with  Domain functional level and forest functional level. Tested the same with different functional levels Windows Server 2008 2 and Windows Server 2003. For both functional levels, it worked fine for me.

After some “REsearch”, I found some interesting updates done on SCCM 2012 R2 Configuration Manager Documentation Library in November 2013. Also, the Technet page has been updated with new prerequisites for SCCM 2012 R2 SSRS report service account.

The SSRS service account should be members of the Windows Authorization Access (WAA) group and Read tokenGroupsGlobalAndUniversal allow permissions. More details @ Technet page “To install the reporting services point on a site system“.

Added a note that the account that runs Reporting Services must belong to the domain local security groupWindows Authorization Access Group, and have the Read tokenGroupsGlobalAndUniversal permission set toAllow.

You should add the group mentioned above and security settings when you have an SSRS-related issue. If that is not solving the issue, you can try something mentioned in the following TechNet thread.

Extract from Technet forum:- Some interesting stuff  In our environment, we run all SQL services as a separate account, say domain\CMSQLSERVICE account (so if you looked at the services, you’d see SQL Server, SQL Server Agent & SQL Server Reporting Services all running as CMSQLSERVICE).

We also run reporting as another account, say domain\CMSQLREPORTING account (SCCM console, Admin, Site Config, Servers & Sites, Reporting services point).

Placing CMSQLREPORTING account into the Windows Authorization Access Group did not resolve the issue as I had thought. We then put the CMSQLSERVICE account in there & everything worked as intended. Fix SCCM Upgrade Breaks SSRS with UserTokenSIDs contains an error ConfigMgr?

You’ll easily see the errors by looking on the reporting point/server with the SQL database for C:\Users\ACCOUNTRUNNINGSQLSERVICE\AppData\Local\Temp.
