Consider the following scenario:
This behavior may occur because of an increase in the number of authentication hops that are required.
To work around this behavior, configure AppAdvisor to use forms-based authentication. This configuration generates a dialog box in which the user can enter credentials.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is expected behavior in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
If you are a member of the Operations Manager Application Monitoring Operator role, the user account must be authenticated when you access AppAdvisor. This is so that the user account can be checked against the System Center data access service in order to grant access to AppAdvisor.
AppAdvisor acts as a proxy between SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) and the front-end server that lets you select certain reports and their parameters. The SQL reporting services have their own authentication model. This model is changed by System Center – Operations Manager during reporting installation. This change introduces an additional hop in the authentication process.
The identity flow for AppAdvisor is as follows.
