Hyperion Data Relationship Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When starting the DRM service the following error is being seen (where x is a username and --- represents where the log has been cut to save space in the note):

Event Type: Error
Source: MDM NTier Process Manager
exception class   : EOleException
exception message : Could not locate user 'x'.

The user that is given in the error is being used for the 'Engine Login' in the DRM console (Configuration > Database Settings).


If this has worked in the past then the user used in the DRM Console for the 'Engine Login' has either been changed to a different user or the user has been removed.

If the DRM console has been pointed to a different database schema then there is also the possibility that this has been pointed to an incorrect schema that does not contain this user.
