When you have just installed AX or got a backup of the AX database from someone, you may not be able to log on to Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012. A following error message may be displayed

 

0285.Failed to logon to Microsoft Dynamics

 

The issue is that you have not been configured as a user in the AX database.

Resolution: The solution has following two steps

1.  In AX 2012 Extract your SID as follows-(Credit to Rudhra Kumar- https://community.dynamics.com/ax/f/33/t/125845)

To get SID for the current logged in domain user, please type the following in your command prompt–> C:\> whoami /user

To get SID for all domain users, please type the following in your command prompt–>wmic useraccount get name,sid whoami /user

 

2. Copy the SID into your AX database in SQL Management Studio in the table dbo.USERINFO, also change the Network Domain and NetworkAlias as per your credentials.
