Microsoft Dynamics GPWith the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 it’s time for a series of “hands on” posts where I go through the installation of all of it’s components; the index for this series can be found here.

I’ve encountered this particular issue around the prerequisites so rarely, that I usually forget to mention it.

Invalid SQL Information - The current user must be a member of the sysadmin SQL role.

Invalid SQL Information

The current user must be a member of the sysadmin SQL role.

To apply the sysadmin permissions, open SQL Server Management Studio and connect to the server using an existing sysadmin account, such as sa. If the login for your does not exist create the login or select the one which is there.
