I have a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 installation. I have always used windows authentication for login.

I use an ODBC to connect to the Front End PC's

All my logins are still listed but when I test the odbc's I am getting the following message.

How can I test the login?

In the ODBC configuration for that connection you need to check the Windows Authentication option and not provide a user and password.

I have checked the ODBC configuration and it as as you suggested.

My problem is that while logins are listed the users are no longer recognized in Windows Authentication , how can I check if the users are registered on the server?

Open SQL Server Management Studio and connect to the SQL Server instance and in the Security folder verify the Logins that are there. Should be the users that has permissions to connect.
