Cannot create user: server cannot determine if it is member of a domain

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi, An instance of our 2008 SP1 SQL Server is running on a computer that was removed from it's domain and then re-added. Now, when I want to create a new login in Management Studio via the nodes Security/Logins, selecting "New Login", entering DOMAIN_NAME\USER_NAME as login name and then click "Search", I get an error message (in German) "Das Programm kann das erforderliche Dialogfeld nicht öffnen, da nicht ermittelt werden kann, ob Computer "COMPUTER_NAME" einer Domäne zugeordnet ist. Schließen Sie dieses Dialogfeld, und wiederholen Sie den Vorgang". Translation: "The program cannot open the required dialog, as it cannot be determined if computer "COMPUTER_NAME" is assigned to a domain. Close this dialog, and repeat the process." But closing the dialog and repeating as suggested does not help. Even restarting the SQL Server service and re-connecting in Management Studio did not help. I keep getting this message. I found, however, that just entering the domain and user name and then clicking Ok seems to add the user. Anyway, it is irritating to get this error message when clicking "Search". How can I tell the engine that the computer is really member of the domain again? Frank

SQL Server: Login failed for user: '\$'



I hate to be the 12345th person to request assistance on this topic, but despite looking at previous requests, I can't seem to find the solution. Any assistance you could offer would be much appreciated.


I have a new ASP.NET 2.0 web application which is hosted on (for argument's sake) WEBSERVER (using IIS 6.0), and which accesses data on SQLSERVER (using SQL Server 2000).

Because this is an intranet application, I want the application's authentication mode to be Windows, and the IIS authentication mode to be Integrated Windows (with Anonymous access disabled). ie: IIS should authenticate the user as smithjohn and SQLSERVER should also authenticate the user as smithjohn.

I don't know if this is relevant, but because of an existing nasty Windows application, all relevant domain users already have their own <DOMAIN>\<username> User account on SQLSERVER.


When I build and browse the pages in Visual Web Developer Express, I can retrieve information from SQLSERVER without any problems.

When I publish the site, and upload it to WEBSERVER, I get the following error upon attempting to retrieve data from a stored procedure on SQLSERVER:


Create Work flow application integrating with domain user and asp.net web pages


Hi, I am WF 4.0 learner. I want to create a work flow application where there will be a request web form to fill out the information lets say request for Books order. There will be couples of primary approver who can approve or reject that request. If approve by primary approver it goes to seconday or final approver who also can do approve or reject the request. Only after appove by secondary approver the flow will be successfully end.

In this flow, all users from the domain can request. some users will be primary approver and some are secondary approvers. Can we develop this scenario in WF 4.0? Your idea will be most welcomed. Thanks

MDX Query runs endless if the User is not a member of the Domain Admin Group


Please, before you say "its not possible" read my post. Myself, i couldnt believe it, until i saw the behaviour with my own eyes.
Environment: SSAS 2005, tested with a MDX Query executed in the SQL Server Management Studio.

We deliver a CUBE (SSAS 2005) that we have build for our Billing System (SQL 2005). Nothing tricky on the cube definition. The cube is installed on several customer systems, runs without a problem. On our in-house test server it runs with no problem. I can execute the same MDX Query connected as a User who is a Member of the Domain Admins and with a User who is a "simple" Domain User. The same query performance, the same Resultset, experienced in-house and by many of our customer.

But on the system of one of our customer i have a really strange behaviour. If i connect on the SQL Management Studio with a User that is in the Domain Admin Role (let's call it user "A") the same MDX Query that we use in-house runs without a problem. But on the customer system i cant execute the MDX Query with a User that is not a Member of the Domain Admin Role (let's call this user "B").
The simple Domain User "B" starts the SQL Management Studio and connects to the Analysis Services Instance. No error. In the SQL Management Studio, on the left pane it has the same metadata, dimensions and members

SQL Server 2005 Grant User Permission to Create Stored Procedure and Grant Execute Access to another


I'm trying to determine the minimal amount of access I can give my developers to be able to run create stored procedure scripts with an inclusion of the grant execute to the application user group.

We have been developing some interesting work arounds, but I think there must be an easier way to grant the access.

User Defined Functions in Microsoft SQL Server

User Defined Functions are compact pieces of Transact SQL code, which can accept parameters, and return either a value, or a table. They are saved as individual work units, and are created using standard SQL commands. Data transformation and reference value retrieval are common uses for functions. LEFT, the built in function for getting the left part of a string, and GETDATE, used for obtaining the current date and time, are two examples of function use. User Defined Functions enable the developer or DBA to create functions of their own, and save them inside SQL Server.

No ASPNET User in Windows Server 2008?


I have been looking everywhere online regarding this, but have not found a clear answer.


I have an ASP.Net app running on Windows Server 2008, it's basically a reporting app using Crystal Reports. I have encountered a roadblock in regards to rendering some pages. When I run the app in Visual Studio(on the same 2008 machine) everything works perfectly. Yet when I publish it and run it live the reports will not display correctly, I get a message saying Failed to render page.


I looked this error up in the Crystal Reports website and the fixes they have there refer to giving the windows "aspnet" user full access rights to certain folders on the machine. I would be happy to do this, however there is no aspnet user in Windows Server 2008.


I installed the server and set its role to be Web Server. I also checked all the options regarding ASP.Net and IIS 6 compatibility. Yet there is no ASPNET username anywhere.


Did I set the server up wrong? or do I have to do something within ASP.Net to  create this user and then give it rights?
