I'm trying to set up Microsoft Business Contact Server Database Tool on my Server 2012 Essentials. Here is an excerpt from a blog:
You will need to create a user account on the server that matches the computer logon account name for each user who will accessing the database. For example, I log into my computer as dianep and need an account on the computer running SQL server called dianep. The password for the user account on the SQL/BCM database server needs to match the password I use to log into my computer. Don't worry about the domain or computer name used for the log on, the username and password are what matters. To create the user account or change the password, type Windows key + R to get the Run command then enter control userpasswords2."
Why do I need to do this? How is this different than creating a new user through the Server Dashboard?
