BPC 7.0 Management Console ‘User does not exist’

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!
