    I am sure we have all dealt with difficult system administrators in the past. These are the people that do not have a word other than 'No' in their vocabulary, as no matter what the question you ask the response is no. If the answer is not no, than it is normally something along the lines of justify why. I understand that system administrators have a job to do and that just like DBAs they need to maintain the availability and integrity of the systems that they support; however, sometimes I think their refusals are a little unjustified.
    One of the interesting challenges when installing SQL Server is the fact that out of the box Reporting Services will only allow access to members of the local administrators group. However, the challenge can be to find a sysadmin who will grant you temporary local administrator rights on a server so you can configure the security of Reporting Services. So who controls the access in your organisation when situations like this occur?
