odbc connection error

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
SQLState: '01000'
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP\IP Sockets]ConnectionOpen (SECCreateCredentials()).
Connection failed:
SQLState '08001'
SQL Server Error: 18
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][TCP\IP Sockets] SSL Security error

There is another entry that says the solution is a registry key, but doesn't give the key.  This conneciton is from a W2K3 Standard web server to a SQL 2005 db on a W2K3 server.  I have 2 other web servers with same config that work.  This error generates no sql logs.  The user id and pw have been verified to work on the sql server.
