SAP Business One NT Authentication

At the initial SBO logon screen, logging on with NT authentication does not work. It seems SBO picks up the password incorrectly because when I type in the password myself with NT authentication on, it works fine.

Any ideas out there?

    Hi Chirs,

    One of the properties of a login is the default database. When a login connects to SQL Server, this default database becomes the current database for the connection, unless the connection request specifies that another database be made the current database.

    A login ID only enables you to connect to an instance of SQL Server. The database administrator maps your login account to a user account in any database you are authorized to access.

    The properties of a trusted connection include the Windows NT group and user accounts of the client that opened the connection. SQL Server gets the user account information from the trusted connection properties and matches them against the Windows accounts defined as valid SQL Server logins. If SQL Server finds a match, it accepts the connection.

    Thus, even when you are using your NT login, this is not knowned by the SQL server as it has not been mapped.

    In general SQL Server needs first to grant login to the NT user, then set a default DB to this login, finally it will grant database access to the NT user.

    I hope this give you some hints.

      Hi Chris, I see you already completed the hard part of the job 😊 Now I understand the case and I agree with you that the password should be retreived automatically.

      This must be a bug. I think the password is not retreived at all. Please report this behavior by opening a message to our support, thus this problem can be fixed.

      Best regads,
