LogonSystemChangedException Dynamics AX

I am getting LogonSystemChangedException when logging into Dynamics AX using business connector. What can be the cause of it?

The correct way to use the method is,

dynamicsAX.LogonAs("AX Alias", "domain",
new System.Net.NetworkCredential("bcaccount", "bcaccountpassword", "domain"),
"company", null, "Instance@server:port", null);

Sometimes you get this issue if you have been logged in with another business connector account. If this is the case make sure to logoff from all business connector sessions and try again.

Container and unbounded string (text) fields are not allowed in a WHERE expression.

Container and unbounded string (text) fields are not allowed in a WHERE expression

"Here is a really simple error / solution. I came back to writing X after a few weeks of down time and actually forgot about this as I am predominately a C# programmer.
The problem:
Axapta does not want you to use an unbounded string in a where clause.�
The solution:
You must use a ‘bounded’ string.� To do this you must declare your string with a numerical limiter e.g. str 30.
PurchTable getFirstByCustomerPOId(str 30 customerPOId)
PurchTable purchTable;
select firstonly purchTable
where purchTable.My_CustomerPurchaseOrderId == customerPOId;
return purchTable;
