GP User not able to login after Password Reset


This article provides information on how to resolve issues when users are unable to log in after password reset. Users normally request for a password reset if they forgot their password.


The “sa” User should do the  password reset since “sa” is a member of both the POWERUSER (application specific) role in Dynamics GP and sysadmin (database specific) role in the SQL Server.


Microsoft Dynamics GP 10

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013


To resolve this, please do the following:

  1. Using the user’s workstation, log in to GP using the “sa” User ID.

  2. Open the “User Setup” window (Microsoft Dynamics GP > Tools > Setup > System > User).Microsoft Dynamics GP User Setup

  3. Select the User ID in question.

  4. Type a temporary password in the Password field.

  5. Repeat in the Confirm Password field.

  6. Mark Enforce Password Policy.

    1. It should automatically mark Enforce Password Expiration and Change Password Next Login options.Microsoft Dynamics GP User Setup

  7. Click Save.

  8. Log out from GP and  have the user log in using his/her GP User ID.

  9. Once the user log in using the temporary password, he/she will receive a prompt to change the password before accessing GP:

    Welcome to Microsoft Dynamics GP

  10. Type the Old Password (temporary password), New Password and Confirm Password:

  11. Click OK and continue to log in.

 Change User Password


If the issue still persists, please consider the following (Please have your IT person do this for you):

  1. Make sure ODBC settings  are pointing to the correct SQL instance.

  2. Make sure that the system is using 32 bit ODBC Data Source Manager and not 64 bit.

  3. ODBC Manager needs to be opened with Admin privileges otherwise it would not save the settings.
