SQL Username continuously being disabled in SQL Server HA Cluster

Heyas,

One particular username is being disabled on the SQL HA cluster, the odd thing is it's only occurring on the Secondary 'Passive Node' of the cluster.

I have checked the SQL jobs on the Secondary Node and nothing from what I can tell is disabling this particular user.

Any ideas on how to investigate/troubleshoot this?

Thank you.

Do you say that you endable the user/login on one node and it is disabled after a while?

They aren't the same SQL Server instance so that's nothing to do with the failover process.
You need to enable manually the login in the instance D002.

Just enable now and next time that it happens again you just return to this question so we will try to solve this.
Btw, how often this occurs?

Heyas,

It has occurred a couple of times last week, but I had to re-enable it for the user.  Now it's disabled and the user is away today :)

Your troubleshooting suggestions, please.

Thank you.

Zack, best thing to do is to track any login change with a trigger on the server side.
In this article you'll find the script for that. Copy and paste it to your SQL Server instance, change the email address to yours and run it. Now every time a change occurs on a login you'll receive an email with the necessary information.
