After installing BPC 7.0 MS the Management Console wouldn’t let me view logging. The ‘User does not exist’ error would appear. This was a Windows Server 2003 R2 dual server environment. Using Fiddler I was seeing a 500 error, with something like ‘cannot resolve server name vmw2317’. Hmmm… vmw seems like VMWare, but I was dealing with physical servers.
Looking at the web.config file, I discovered several appSettings with vmw2317 and vmw2315; these were left over by SAP during development. Changed the names to our real server names, saved the file and everything works!
