You can follow these instructions and replace "SA" with your username. This assumes you do know a valid set of credentials.

'test' is not a valid login or you do not have permission.

Requires at least ALTER ANY LOGIN permission and if the login is a member of sysadmin server role you will require CONTROL SERVER permission.
