when i try the below:

CREATE LOGIN test WITH PASSWORD='test', CHECK_POLICY = OFF
execute as login = 'test'
use ROSE_IT --works ok
use tracker -- says "The server principal "test" is not able to access the database "tracker" under the current security context."
revert

why is that one database acts differently than the other. what setting is that?

thanks

in object explorer details, I see only one column - Name. So should not be a problem, i would thinking.

DB chaining is off.

i checked in sys.databases for ROSE_IT and tracker databases, and all bit values are the same.

Did you try this comment from the 2nd link:

This appears to be a Login/Database Mapping issue.  I was having this problem, but was able to resolve it as follows:

 

Using the SQL Server management Studio:

In the Object explorer, under the SERVER security folder (not the database security folder), expand Logins.

That is: ServerName -> Security -> Logins

NOT: ServerName -> Databases -> DatabaseName -> Security -> Users

Select the Login that is having the troubles.  Right click on the Login and select ‘Properties.’

 

The ‘User Mapping’ page should list all databases on the server with a check mark on the databases that the Login has been mapped to.  When I was getting the error, the database in question was not checked (even though the Login was assigned as a User on the database itself).  Map the Login by checking the box next to the database name.  Set the default schema.  Then select the roles for the Login in the Database role membership list box.  I selected db_datareader and public.  After clicking OK to save the changes, the problem was resolved.

 
In order to ‘Map’ the Login, the Login must not already be as User on the database, so you may have to go to the database security (ServerName -> Databases -> DatabaseName -> Security -> Users) and delete the Login from the list of database Users before mapping the Login to the database.
