SQL Server 2008 Windows AD ODBC Connection Error ( JasonLaskey:ITLab)

Hi Gurus, I have been battling with this error and Im unable to resolve this problem for a client. Any assitance would be appreciated. Scenario is when client tries to establish a n ODBC connection using Windows Auth he gets the error (See attachment), however if he tries to establish the connection using the sa user he is successful. I frist thought this could be a permissions problem so I went and added the "logged in" AD user he tried to establisht the ODBC connection with to the SQL Managment Studio>Roles>sysadmin group. But this didnt work. I checked the "SQL network config" named pipes to make sure the servers IP is in there which it is , however this was not neccessary, as obviously a connection is still established using the sa user. Any assistance is appreciated: JasonLaskey:ITLab

Hi Mandeep,

Sorry that I haven't replied yet to your comment.
I am waiting for the client to come back from Holiday before I can attempt anything WRT the ODBC error.
As soon as I do test I will revert back to you.

Thanks again
