FIX: Trusted RPCs Do Not Work with Different Passwords

PSS ID Number: Q105946 Article last modified on 10-31-1994



The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft SQL Server version 4.2

BUG# NT: 525 (4.2)


With a mapped trusted account on the remote machine, an attempt to execute a remote procedure generates the following error:

Msg 7221, Level 14, State 2: Login to site “<remote server>” failed.

This happens only if the password for the local account is different from the password on the mapped account on the remote machine.


As a work around, change the passwords on both servers to be the same.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server version 4.2 for Windows NT. This problem was corrected in SQL Server version 4.21. For more information, contact your primary support provider.
