BizTalk WCF-SQL Error: Microsoft.ServiceModel.Channels.Common.ConnectionException: Login failed for user

And yes, this is just another “Login failed for user” SQL Server WCF-Adapter related error. In the past I wrote about a similar topic BizTalk WCF-SQL Error:

This time the error message, the cause, and the solution are slightly different. This time while trying to communicate to a brand-new SQL Server server/database to insert date on a table thru BizTalk WCF-SQL adapter I got the following error:

Microsoft.ServiceModel.Channels.Common.ConnectionException: Login failed for user ‘BTSHostSrvc’. —> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Login failed for user ‘BTSHostSrvc’.

BizTalk Server WCF-SQL: Login failed for user

In the event viewer the message is pretty much the same:

A message sent to adapter “WCF-Custom” on send port “STAGING_BULK_SQL_WCf_SEND” with URI “mssql://SQLSRV/ /ESBAsync” is suspended.

BizTalk Server WCF-SQL: Login failed for user

Cause

Once again, sometimes is not quite true, the cause of the problem is simple to diagnose, and the error message gives a very good intel in the cause of the problem.

This problem occurs because the user account that you used to access the database, in my case the BizTalk Host Instance Account, don’t have permissions to connect… the SQL Server or SQL Server instance.

Just to be clear, this is not having permission to insert, read or event full permission to do operation on a specific database, that is completely different – I check all of that and the user have the correct access/permission. What I forget was to give access to connect to the SQL Server/SQL Server Instance.

Solution

To solve this issue, you must give access to the user, in my case BizTalk Host Instance Account to connect to the SQL Server and for that, you must:

  • Open SQL Server Management Studio and connect to your server.
  • In the Object Explorer, expand the “Security” folder under the server.
  • Right click on the “Logins” folder and choose “New Login…”
  • Add the username or group in the format “Domain\UserNameOrGroup”

  • Choose the “Securables” tab and make sure that you grant “Connect SQL” permission to the SQL Server/SQL Server instance

  • Click “OK” and your user will be created and have access to connect to your SQL Server.
