I am working on an Azure Mobile Apps backend service, which I am trying to connect to a local SQL Server database, as described here. I have followed all the steps, except I am using SQL Server 2016 rather than 2014.

If I follow the Microsoft tutorial exactly, everything works fine. I am not sure what the environment variable is about, as I don't reference it anywhere, but anyway, when I run my app, I get the following output:

Express server listening on port 3000
2016-06-19T09:37:39.331Z - error: Error occurred during table initialization ConnectionError: Login failed for user 'azuremobile'. Reason: The password of the account must be changed.

This seems to be because of the setting that is shown below, "User Must change password at next login"?

However, If I change the password, or delete and recreate the login but unchecking that feature. I get this:

Error occurred during table initialization ConnectionError: Login failed for user 'azuremobile'.

I am possibly getting the password wrong, but I have tried this 6 times now. Is there a way I can check the password or anything else I can do to get my node project to login to my local SQL Server database?


Here is my UserMapping:

  • Have you made sure that the login you are creating has an appropriate user mapping for the database you're trying to connect to ? – druzin Jun 19 '16 at 11:19
  • @druzin How could I check that? In SQL Server Managment Studio, that login isn't mapped to any credentials? – George Edwards Jun 19 '16 at 11:26
  • What does it say on the User Mapping page of the user creation dialog ? – druzin Jun 19 '16 at 11:27
  • @druzin Sure, see the screenshot I have added to the question – George Edwards Jun 19 '16 at 11:31

    What is the name of the database you are trying to connect to in your project though ( Initial catalog ) – druzin Jun 19 '16 at 11:42

Ahh, I had a typo in the name of my database... There was nothing wrong with the credentials!
