GP Login Error: “The login failed. Attempt to login again or contact your system administrator”
Implementing a new Dynamics GP environment or migrating an existing GP to new servers it's not an easy task. So I think it's safe to say, we've all encountered our fair share of complications when doing so. In this blog, we will go over a GP Login Error of not being able to login with SQL sa credentials, and exactly how to resolve it.  We will start with an overall understanding of the GP Login Error by visiting Microsoft Support and reviewing the following suggestions: Confirm password information for sa. Check Data Source configuration for GP client (ODBC). Check versioning for GP. If a service pack is available, consider installing it. Review permissions for the smDex_Max_Char stored procedure. To put this in practice, we took an example of a recent case, where a client was migrating databases associated with GP to a new SQL server. After the databases were migrated, the system administrator was […]

ERROR: “The database setup has not been completed for Microsoft Dynamics GP”
Does your business run two instances of Microsoft Dynamics GP? If you’re doing business in more than one region, the answer is likely yes. However, sometimes having multiple instances can cause errors you might not normally see. In this blog, we’ll show you how to solve one such error that causes you to receive a popup that states “the database setup has not been completed for Microsoft Dynamics GP.” The Scenario One instance in which I encountered this error was while helping a client who had a United States instance of Dynamics GP as well as an Australian (AUS) instance of Dynamics GP.
