Configuring SSRS wiht MOSS 2007 - is Kerberos required?

  Asked By: Phenil    Date: Jul 27    Category: MOSS    Views: 897

I've read that for applications that require a SharePoint 'double hop' (e.g. when using Excel Services) require Kerberos security to be configured. We're getting ready to implement a SSRS SharePoint Integrated system and want to check if the 'double hop' would be encountered in that scenario .

If you are using Windows Authentication and the data source is on another server ,then yes. If you are pointing RS reports to data sources that have the connection information in them, then no.

I agreed with Chris.
