error 4064

for some users, the connection in SSMS fails:

Cannot open user default database. Login failed.
 Login failed for user ‘UserName’. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 4064)

why does not the connection like 'default' chosen? and this happens only for some users? why?

this user has permission to the database in question and that database has a proper owner. (no NULL)

when the user chooses a different database as default, then the connection goes through. but it is a pain to change everytime trying to connect SSMS.

I have this code saved and run it everytime I have to pull back a copy of our Production database and restore it on top of a DEV or STG instance on a different server.
You may want to consider resetting all your SID's in all environments to be the same, that way they are always in sync.
