I just recently had SSRS installed and trying to define roles for users to have access to certain folders to run reports. Unfortunately when I connect to Reporting Services, select Security, then right click on roles, the selections for New Role and Delete Role are grayed out. It appears as though its a permission problem but I am an adminsitrator. What do I need to do in order to make the selections active? HELP!
