Run Sync-DlmDatabaseSchema by a specified domain user

I am having a problem with running Sync-DlmDatabaseSchema by a specified Windows domain user against the target remote SQL server instance.
My Jenkins project runs a PowerShell task with Invoke-Command that creates a new session with specified user credentials, and executes a script that invokes Sync-DlmDatabaseSchema with New-DlmDatabaseConnection object .
The user credentials seem to be correctly taken, however
the database connection to the remote SQL server is done as anonymous user causing a login error.
If the target SQL server instance is local on the same machine as Jenkins, then the connection
to the database is done using the specified user, as expected.

#The following is the PowerShell script:
$SrvPassword = ConvertTo-SecureString "myPassword" -AsPlainText -Force
$cred = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ("Domainproc_BuildDeploy", $SrvPassword)
$s = New-PSSession -Credential $cred -ComputerName localhost
#run a scripts under the user specified
Invoke-Command -Session $s -filePath "c:mw_database_deploy_test.ps1"

# The following is the content of "c:mw_database_deploy_test.ps1" file


$cur_user = [System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity]::GetCurrent().Name


$source ="$workspace$dbName.$build_number.nupkg"

$target = New-DlmDatabaseConnection -ServerInstance "$serverInstance" -Database "$dbName"

Sync-DlmDatabaseSchema -Source $source -Target $target -ErrorAction Stop

# The error:
New-DlmDatabaseConnection, DLM Automation, Copyright © Red Gate Software Ltd 2014-2017
Target: database 'vse_master' on server 'mysqlremoteserver,2666'
Sync-DlmDatabaseSchema, DLM Automation, Copyright © Red Gate Software Ltd 2014-2017
Error from mw_database_deploy.ps1 script. Server Instance: mysqlremoteserver,2666, Database: vse_master.
Error Message: Couldn't connect to the database specified by the Target parameter: Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITYANONYMOUS LOGON'..


  • Hey etabelev,

    Thanks for contacting us!
    Can you just confirm that the remote server is a Microsoft SQL Server Instance and not a MySQL instance?
    Can you send in the full step log?
    Are you having issues with the Build step as well?
    Is that user configured in the remote sql server instance and what permissions does it have?
