An error you may encounter while working in HGA
Error “ Login failed for user ‘XY\….username.. “ when creating a project
This happens when a client is working in HGA and tries to create a project. The series of errors is:
There was a problem while trying to create the new project
Error “ Login failed for user ‘CH\…..username. “
This usually happens when the user has dbcreator privileges and is attempting to create a project or install the Demo project. It does not matter whether the user logs in by SQL Server or Windows Authentication.
In order to resolve the issue, the user needs to be granted the “View any definition” permission. This can be done in SQLServer Management Studio by viewing the properties of the user login or role under the Security tab of a SQLServer instance.
It can also be accomplished through the following query, when connected to the SQLServer instance:
Grant VIEW ANY DEFINITION to [user]. Hope this helps!
