Using a '&' character within your password results in the following error:>rskeymgmt.exe -a -f file.snk -p Strong&PasswordAccess is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))'Password' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.Additionally Mike Yin states (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlreportingservices/thread/71526eef-68f1-4e55-8944-7d9554db9fef/): It seems that the “&” character within in the command line ends the commands before it, and starts a new command line for the characters after it. For example, if we set the path of the .snk file to include the “&” character, the same error will occur. However, if we backup/restore the encryption key via the Reporting Services Configuration Manager instead of the rskeymgmt utility, we can specify the “&” character in the password.
