SQL Server Security Login does not work after restoring database on another computer

I backup the production database on server named SQL1 then restored the database on server named SQL2. SQL server security login name "user1" has been created on both SQL1 and SQL2 servers. When I restore the database on SQL2 I have to re-map and give db_datareader access to the "user1" user name again. How can I fix the problem of having to re-map and give db_datareader access everytime I restore the database on a second server?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are two ways to fix this.

#1 drop the user on the second server, and recreate it using the same SID as the first server has.

#2 After you restore the database use the sp_change_users_login system stored procedure to match up the logins with the users.
