You need add the users in NAV2013 RTC under

CRONUS Nederland BV/Departments/Administration/IT Administration/General/Users

You can login to database with Windows from which you have installed.

Hi Saurav,

One more question as i am new in NAV 2013, will the user as i have created using “NAVuserpassword” be created in SQL or not??

It might be a sily question but i am a beginner in NAV 13 setup so it will of great help to me.

Thanks & Regards,
