FIX SQL Orphaned Users (Create SQL Users exists in a restored database in SQL Users)

Have you ever restored a database from your backup and wanted an easy way to get users automatically created? script below will do this task for you:

 

DECLARE @USER varchar(500)
DECLARE @SID  varchar(500)

DECLARE CURR CURSOR FOR
SELECT NAME, SID FROM sysusers WHERE issqluser = 1 and (sid is not null and sid <> 0x0)
and suser_sname(sid) is null ORDER BY name
OPEN CURR
FETCH NEXT FROM CURR INTO @USER, @SID
WHILE @@FETCH_STATUS = 0
BEGIN
EXEC sp_change_users_login ‘Auto_Fix’, @USER, @SID , @SID
FETCH NEXT FROM CURR INTO @USER, @SID
END
CLOSE CURR
DEALLOCATE CURR

Above script will read all database level defined users and locate it corresponding users in SQL, if it found the script will map existing user to SQL user, otherwise it will add a new user with a new password and map both users.

Next step required is to change the user password at the application level “Dynamics GP” so it encrypts the user password again and fulfill business requirements.

Slow Login Performance for GP 10.0 SP5 and GP 2010 SP1

If you have updated to GP 10.0 SP 5 or GP 2010 SP1 you might already notice the slow performance during login, this is mainly related to the newly added “Dynamics Online Services” dictionary that adds records in the menu table with removing old ones as detailed in this article for David Musgrave and this article for Vaidy Mohan, the temporary solution for this is deleting the records in the menu table that’s related to this dictionary.

To avoid the manual deletion of the records in this table, you will need to create an SQL job that automatically deletes unwanted records from this table, follow steps below to start:

1. Open SQL Server, navigate to SQL Server Agent >> Jobs, right click and select “New Job”:

2. Name this Job and click on “Steps”:

3. On steps click on “New”, select your company and paste the following command then click on OK:

DELETE FROM DYNAMICS.dbo.SY07110 WHERE CmdParentDictID = 6499

image

4. On the new job screen click on schedules and schedule the task to run daily:

5. That’s it, you are ready to go, right click the job and select “Start Job”

Make sure that the job was successfully executed:

Enjoy!

Mass “Auto Apply” for Payables Management in Microsoft Dynamics GP

Have you ever wanted to apply your vendors transactions automatically without having to move between all your vendors? I been in a situation with a new client that works on Dynamics GP since 2001 and they never applied their vendors payments to their invoices.

Working on this manually is a real nightmare and the user will keep working on this for ever before being able to finalize, therefore I have wrote script below that generates Macro to set this up, follow steps below to get the macro:

1. Open SQL Server and create new query.

2. Select your company database.

3. Paste code below ** “at the article footer under the signature” and run.

4. Script will generate a macro:

image

5. Copy macro text and paste it into a new notepad document.

6. Save it under “.Mac” extension.

7. Go to “Transactions >> Purchasing >> Apply Payables Documents”.

8. Go to “Tools >> Macro >> Play” and select the file you just saved:

Enjoy watching your transactions during the apply process.
