Dynamics AX 2009 + SSRS Lessons Learned

Following are the lessons i have learned when configuring SSRS for AX 2009,

1- Always use IP address for connecting to SSRS
2- Add both the business connector user and the client connecting user as AX users, for instance if your bc user is proxy and the client connecting is newclient both the ID's should be in AX.
3- Make sure the business connector is configured properly.
4 -Make sure that SSRS URL is under trusted sites.
