The report server has encountered a configuration error. Logon failed for the unattended execution account.

 

I recently ran into this error. “The report server has encountered a configuration error. Logon failed for the unattended execution account.”

A couple weeks ago I changed the passwords on all my SCOM Service Accounts.  I didn’t run any reports since then, but when I finally ran one I got the above error.

So to fix it I logged into my SQL Server and looked at Reporting Services Configuration.  I initially thought it was the service account.

svc

I changed the password and tried to run the reports but got the same error.

The looking a little further I realized the it was obviously the Execution Account as that is what was specified in the error.  

svc2

 

I then ran reports without any issues.
