The upgrade tasks scheduled by Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) and Power BI Report Server (PBRS) are performed by SQL Server Agent. SQL Server Agent is a Windows service that performs scheduled management tasks (jobs). For permission to perform the update task to be fulfilled, authentication of an Active Directory domain account is required. The Microsoft SQL Server installation involves running the SQL Server Agent service as NT SERVICE\SQLSERVERAGENT thereby Active Directory is refusing access to SQL Agent.


Use an Active Directory domain user account to log on.

What is Power BI Report Server

Power BI Report Server is an on-premises report server with a web portal in which you display and manage reports and KPIs. Along with it come the tools to create BI reports, paginated reports, mobile reports, and KPIs. Your users can access those reports in different ways: viewing them in a web browser or mobile device, or as an email in their in-box.

PBI Report Server is similar to both SQL Server Reporting Services and it’s online service, but in different ways. Like the PBI service, PBI Report Server hosts PBI reports (.pbix), Excel files, and paginated reports.
