I'm trying to add a user mapping to an already existing login. In the Login Properties for the login, I need to add another database, so I check it and enter the User and Default Schema. When I click OK, it gives me an error 15023 saying that the user already exists. It's supposed to already exist, I'm just adding a User Mapping to this login. Help?

User mapping in the GUI attempts to create the user in the database you're trying to map to, thus the error you got.

Use sp_change_users_login to remap the existing database user to the existing login.

example: sp_change_users_login 'update_one', 'username', 'loginname'

I think some users got orphan.

exec sp_change_users_login 'REPORT'
--( run in every database to see which all logins got orphan)

Hello,

sp_change_users_login will update the users, why do have to delete and update for each DB.

Note this is a old thread.
