AX2012 R2 Retail: Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication.

The scenario is that POS PC and Store database PC are joined to domain however they are on a remote location and without VPN access they cannot resolve Active directory user and FQDN. Instead of a domain account, we used local PC account to perform all actions on SQL and connect Retail POS through the same local user. We also used different credentials for POS and Store database pc, e.g. POSPC and StorePC which is perhaps the mistake we made.

After all setups for POS, when I started AX 2012 R2 Retail POS it stopped working, event viewer showed following error:

“Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication”

In order to resolve this error make sure of the following:
1. Username on POS and Store database PC must be SAME.
2. Password for both users must be SAME.

This user will authenticate POS user on Store database PC to connect to SQL database only if the username and password are the same.


Reason Code Functionality on POS -Ax 2012

In today’s post, I would like to share Reason Code functionality on POS. We often conduct transactions that need a reason or comment. Microsoft Dynamics AX has come up with reason codes in which we can define reason behind of the transactions. I would like to share how we can use this functionality over AX POS

Step 1:  Go to Retail > Setups > Reason Codes

R-1

Step 2: Create new Reason Code

Step 3: Type reason Number, description and input type sub codes to associate more sub codes in reason code or you can go for text to if you just want write something as a reason.

R-2

Step 4: Create Sub Codes

R-3

Step 5 : In General mark the check box

r-4

Step 6 : In Printing mark check box if you want to Print the reason code on the receipt

r-5

You can define where you want these reason code to be apply:

Go to Retail > Setup > POS > Profile > Functionality Profile

r-6

r-7

Step 8: now run the JOBS

You can see over POS reason code will be applied

r-8

You can also review on HQ which transaction has been perform on that particular reason Code

Go to Retail > Setup > Reason Code > Reason Code Transaction

r-9

r-10

The solution I found is simple by copying TestConnector DLL to Retail folder.

1. Copy the Microsoft.Dynamics.Retail.TestConnector.dll from “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Client\Bin\Connectors”

2. Paste the Microsoft.Dynamics.Retail.TestConnector.dll to “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics AX\60\Retail POS\Connectors”

3. Open POS, Problem solved
