A Task Scheduler problem

I have a script that takes backups of a client's SQL Server databases at a specific time every evening using Task Scheduler.
We then installed SQL Server 2014 at the client so this necessitated me having to re-install my backup script and recreate the Task Scheduler job.
Now it gives this error: " Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft ODBC Driver 11 for SQL Server : Login failed for user 'AFRICASUNOIL\abdulhamid'.."
Can someone help ?

does the script run on the same machine as the server?
is the TCP/IP protocol enabled in the SQL Server configuration?
Could it be a firewall issue? Desactivate it for 10 minutes the time to run your test
Is the server name and/or instance name have changed?
was your user recreated on the new server?

Have you had a chance to test the ODBC driver connection with that account to rule out whether this is a driver/compatability issue or a specific user account issue?

Hi Eric,
The last one of your question suggestions was the cause of the problem.
The user concerned had not been recreated on the new server.
Thanks.
