To Know more read below:

  • Company files get damaged or incorrect.
  • The setting of the DNS is incorrect.
  • Third party software conflict.

What do you need to mind before we start with the troubleshoot for Sage 2104 login issue:

  • Check that you are not trying to login to an incorrect company.
  • Check that username and password are typed correctly, for they are case sensitive:
    • For instance, Office, OFFICE and office are not interchangeable as a password. The password and user ID need to be as they were when they were set up.
    • In case you have forgotten your user ID, it’s retrievable. All you need to do is to browse to the directory of your company and find *.cac and *.cax. That’s it, you will have your username. The files you find with .cax or .cac formats carry your username. For instance, if you found a file named Emily.cax then your username was Emily.
  • In case your password and User ID are longer than usual, type them elsewhere and copy paste them in the relevant fields in your Sage login page.

Point to Remember : Now, remember that an administrator user can revoke any old password and reset it for his respective company. Henceforth, if the administrator is able to log in, you will need to follow the Solution 1, but if the administrator is not able to log in, follow Solution 3.
