Dynamics GP SQL Password - Something Interesting must test it !!!

Dynamics GP – SQL Password.
While working one of my colleague here I found something unusual in Dynamics GP2013 R2 and even GP2015 R2.

We have asked our IT department to create VM with SQL server. They have installed SQL server with ‘sa’ password ‘sql2k12@myowncompany’.

When we were trying to install GP. Utilities ran successfully with 'sa' user id and above password, we was able to create Production Company through Dynamics GP utilities but not able to login to Dynamics GP.

Spend almost 2 days to see why we are not able to Login GP. Asked IT team to reformatted server reinstalled SQL but again they given same ‘sql2k12@myowncompany’ password.  Again same story able to login GP Utility but not able to login GP. DYNSA user ID and password is working. Even we have checked all other security screen in Dynamics GP and log file was not showing any error.

Somehow I saw GP user login screen not taking password more than 15 character….!!! Whereas I can type password more than 15 characters in GP utility...!!! We got issue.

Now question is how come Dynamics GP Utility allow to enter password more than 15 character and GP Login screen user password restricted to 15 characters only.

Until Next Post!!!

  1. It would not be the first time that field lengths aren't in sync across related apps. In the past I have encountered a similar issue with GP and eConnect.
