I have a problem with Reporting Service Integration on my environment.

We have 2 WFE's. Reporting services is configured on both. However, on the SharePoint Central Admin under reporting services integration, we have specified


as the reporting instance. I'm reading on some Microsoft Articles that I should use a NLB Address here. Anyways, I'm not sure if that's the cause.

My problem is that when browsing to


and clicking on some report, it redirects to


Why is it redirecting to server 2 when server 1 also has Reporting services configured? Even this is not a big issue.

This biggest issue is that we don't access the SharePoint environments using the server names directly,but via a hardware load balancer and a dns friendly name.

So, what's happening is that sometimes when browsing to


and clicking on a report, it gives a RS Error

"For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors "

I figured out that when this error occurs, the Load balancer is forcing the user to server1. Any idea how to fix this problem?

Thank you

Ok, I managed to find and fix the problem. Everything was Kerberos related. I changed my web application to use Kerberos and then everything was working fine.
