some more detail:

the db is on the MS cloud called Azure and the security protocols do
not allow plain text passwords in scripts, so only this interactive
login will be allowed. the window that opens is a browser window titled
"Windows Azure Authentication"
Has anybody been able to connect to Azure from ESS?
