VIEW SERVER STATE permission on SQL Server?

Hi all,

Sometime While trying to Login into a database we face an error message as shown below.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV Classic
You cannot start Microsoft Dynamics NAV Classic because you do not have the VIEW SERVER STATE permission on SQL Server.

Contact your system administrator.


Cause of Error -

This error normally occurs due to issues that occur while creating Login ID in SQL Server.

Resoultion -

1) Open SQL Server Managment Studio.
2) Click on New Query.
3) Copy & Paste Query given Below.
4) Replace USERID with the User ID for which the error is coming.
5) Select the Whole Query.
6) Press F5.


USE [master]

Now try to Login, the issue is resolved.

Thanks & Regards,
Saurav Dhyani
