KB-8734: How to use MSA (Managed Service Account) to run Reporting Service?

Question:

How to use MSA (Managed Service Account) to run Reporting Service?
 
Workaround:

Currently, using MSA to run Reporting Service is not supported in the User Interface. (RFE has been filed and accepted)
 
However, we use the following workarounds:
If you hadn't deployed the Report Services, please firstly deploy it by using a domain account / built-in account as service account.
  1. Create SQL login and user for the target MSA:
  • Open SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) and connect to the instance which the Report Services is deployed to
  • Use SQL command to create SQL login for the target MSA, e.g.
create login [{MSA account} from Windows]
  • Create DB user for this SQL login under the DB which the Report Services is deployed to, and grant it as the role: SnapshotService
  1. If you're using domain mode, make sure you've delegated the 'Replicate Directory Changes' permission to the target MSA
  2. Start > Run > Services.msc > Locate Centrify Report Services and change it's service account to the target MSA > Restart the Report Services
  3. Open Report Services Control panel > Troubleshooting > Click Validate to verify if the MSA is configured correctly.
