  • its strange. it seems to be when I use some sort of privilege

    so I can login via windows auth, I can look at all the collapsed item on the left ... DB Management agent etc. I can attempt to create a user and hit save. it then says failed and when i go back to look at the item I am not allowed. I can then log out and log back in and the user is created


    EDIT - this is on MS SQL 2017 Linux

  • so tried this

    execute as login = '<DOMAIN>\svcDEVSQL'

    got back

    Msg 15404, Level 16, State 22, Line 1
    Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user '<DOMAIN>\svcDEVSQL', error code 0x80090304.

    still no closer.

    strangely I can find users in AD ?

  • Using the Error Lookup utility, I find that error 0x80090304 means The Local Security Authority cannot be contacted.

    So there appears to be some communication problem between SQL Server and the domain controller.

  • Hmm, how do I diagnose this. I rang a wireshark to see if there were any network issue, but I see none.

    I have looked through the event log and can't find anything related to a failure from this machine

  • Maybe a better question where would the formal support interface be ? Is there a web one ?

  • Hi Alex,

    Did you manage to solve this? Because same problem here...
    Is your domain stand-alone? In my case, it's top-level domain of 15-or-so child domains forest, with external trusts to c.a. 5 other forests. 

    And another problem is that I have no idea how to debug this; strace running on mssql-server shows nothing, sssd logs on highest debug level (9) show nothing when error occurs, as well as samba-winbind logs.

    - connecting to database with domain user is always successful
    - usualy, single query like CREATE LOGIN [DOMAIN\user] FROM WINDOWS; happens to be successful
    - but next query is not - until mssql-server unit restarted

    I'm able to perform domain logon to linux server TTY, also enumerating users and groups with getent, id or wbinfo is working.

    Microsoft SQL Server 2017 (RTM-CU9) (KB4341265) - 14.0.3030.27 (X64)
    CentOS Linux release 7.5.1804 (Core)

  • Hey,

    I am not sure if you are still having this issue, but to fix it, you need to have the machine account (hostname$) in your keytab. To fix this, please follow step 3 of "Configure SQL Server service keytab" in the setup docs here:

  • Same here, SQLServer 2017 on Ubuntu Server 16.04.1.

    My domain user is in sysadmin role; when I connect to SQLServer with that user and try to execute the following administrative query:

    execute as LOGIN='DOMAINNAME\domain.user'

    it throws the error:

    Msg 15404, Level 16, State 22, Line 1
    Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'DOMAINNAME\domain.user', error code 0x80090304.

    I've already checked everything, multiple times: DNS, hosts, service account, SPN, wbinfo -u, wbinfo -g, ...

    SQLServer log contains nothing relevant (in fact it reports nothing at all).

  • Additional note:
    I'm logged in with my AD user, which is in sysadmin group.

    When I run a command that requires administrative privileges like this:

    USE [master]

    it works only at first run.

    Running it the second time it throws the same error:

    Msg 15404, Level 16, State 22, Line 1
    Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'DOMAINNAME\myDomainUser', error code 0x80090304.
    If I disconnect/reconnect it works again only for the first time.
