check the following query
USE [master]
GO
EXEC master.dbo.sp_addlogin @loginame = N'PRIC_1_TEST', @passwd = N'', @defdb = N'TRACKER'

Open in new window

CREATE LOGIN loginName { WITH <option_list1> | FROM <sources> }

<option_list1> ::=
    PASSWORD = { 'password' | hashed_password HASHED } [ MUST_CHANGE ]
    [ , <option_list2> [ ,... ] ]

<option_list2> ::=  
    SID = sid
    | DEFAULT_DATABASE = database    

You are missing the PASSWORD= clause
CREATE LOGIN [PRIC_1_TEST] WITH PASSWORD='test', DEFAULT_DATABASE = [TRACKER]

Open in new window

You need WITH PASSWORD ='MyPassword' or FROM WINDOWS depending if this is a local user account (to sql server) or a Windows user.

CREATE LOGIN [PRIC_1_TEST] WITH PASSWORD= 'MyPassword', DEFAULT_DATABASE=[TRACKER];
GO

OR

CREATE LOGIN [PRIC_1_TEST] FROM WINDOWS WITH DEFAULT_DATABASE=[TRACKER];
GO
