not able to add a group to SSRS

not able to add a group to SSRS

not able to add a group to SSRS

Hi All,

I am trying to add a group to SSRS site settings but am receiving the error:

The user or group name 'domain\SSRS_Viewers' is not recognized. (rsUnknownUserName)

I have looked up other forums but none of the recommendations seem to work, has anyone else encountered this issue?

Thanks in advance,


RE: not able to add a group to SSRS

I had it before but I think it was because the SSRS server was on a differnet domain and there was no trust between both domains.
Try adding a user who is a member of that group, just as a test. If that works then you'd expect the group to work.
