Come in closer and learn how to fix SSRS Subscriptions…

Greetings to the Kingdom,

Over the weekend we had a datacenter move and in the the process moved the database for SSRS.  I knew that my subscriptions would automatically move, so imagine my surprise when they didn’t.  Our SSRS databases were located on a new server that had the same name as the old server.  After running down the error “The EXECUTE permission was denied on the object ‘xp_sqlagent_notify’, database ‘mssqlsystemresource’, schema ‘sys’”, I found a super awesome blog post.  It noted that I was missing assignments to my RSExecRole role.  Once I ran the script, I stopped and restart SSRS and all the subscriptions came over.  Huge sigh of relief.  Have a great day!
