Hi,

This is a "feature" of GP.  It retains the last GP login and displays it as the default user ID, with the assumption that GP is installed on a user's PC and they will be the one logging in each day.  This is not an issue with older vs. newer versions of GP.

This is a common complaint among people who use Terminal Services and do not want the last user ID to be displayed.

There are two solutions, both of which are discussed in KB articles on Customer Source.

1) Write a VB script on the login window that will 'blank out' the user ID field when the window appears

2) Remove the last user from the Dex.ini file on the Terminal Server and make the Dex.ini file read only

I would recommend searching Customer Source.  If you can't find the articles that cover the options above, let me know and I will track them down for you.

Thanks,

GP = Great Plains application.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our users connected GP  Windows terminal server.

There is no issue on windows server login.

We have  made setup   when user login it automatically goes to GP.
(In user properties "Environment" - " Start program"  - c://.............etc)

For an example, after a  user "A" login GP ,

when the user "B" login to GP user id shows "A",
I
(It is not a big issue. He can change it.)

 why the user "A" appears.


Both the users have separate windows login and also separate GP login.

It happens only in GP login. Not windows login.

That is a Great Plains issue with older versions.  They show the last login from that machine, not from that profile.  I am guessing that you are not running the most current version of Great Plains.

Hi,

The VBA option is discussed in KB Article 859129, "Blank User ID in Great Plains".

I'm not able to find an article discussing the Dex.ini option--that might have come from a support case that I submitted for the issue.

Here's the abridged version:

1. Locate and open the Dex.ini file in the Dynamics application directory on the terminal server
2. Find the SQLLastUser=xxxxx line and delete the user ID value ("SQLLastUser=")
3. Save the Dex.ini
4. Make the file Read Only

The downside to this approach is that any user preferences or setttings that a GP user may need or want to change and have saved to the Dex.ini will obviously not be saved.  This may not be an issue for your environment, but just keep it in mind in case a user complains about a setting or preference going away, or users with different screen resolutions have issues with the GP window location and size (since those settings are stored in Dex.ini).


Thanks,
