Hi,

We have a domain user domainA/user1 and it is one of members of domainA/groupA. DBA created a trusted login for the domain group domainA/groupA in the SQL server instance. However, when domainA/user1 tries to login to the sql server instance using server name = local and Authentication =  Window Authentication, he got a login error saying Failed login domainA/user1 with 18456.

What could be missed or the problems?

Thanks.

local will not work for a server name.

Use either the actual machine name, localhost or a dot (.)

I am assuming you are logging in locally from the box since you tried to use the localhost as the server name.

A few other thoughts
-Is shared memory enabled in sql server configuration manager protocols?
-Is this a named instance? If so you need to specify the name of the instance as well as have the browser server started.
-Did your dba specify a default database and give access to that database?
- Has the AD change replicated out?

Thanks,

Yes, The shared memory was enabled.
No. It is not a named instance
Yes, It has default database and has db_owner role for the default database
Yes. I think so. The domain group is also the member of local admininstrators group and is able to perform local admin tasks.

Is the login disabled?
Does the user have connect permissions?
(Management studio shows a red down arrow by the login or user if this is the case - the user is under database level security).

Is there any more information you can give - either through sql's error log or windows event viewer?

The login was enabled.
The login was granted with connection permission.
It does not have the red down arrow by it.

Thanks,
