"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sounds like you're on the SQL Server itself. You need to select the AD to search for your user name first. When the error comes from a  script, here you need to specify the domain also: YOUR_DOMAIN\rmalone.

I think you're trying to create a database user and not a SQL Server login.
Can you provide the steps that you're using or even better, a screen shot?
