We have a SQL 2005 server, which is running on a Domain controller.

When we access the database using a SQL login from the machine database server it works.

When we access the same database using the same SQL login from a different machine we get the following error message: "The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server Connection"

Anybody have any idea why we are getting this error?

Are you using SSMS to connect remotely or are you talking about an application using the login? – phoebus Jan 14 '10 at 18:26
We have tried both using SSMS and the wizard on a UDL file. – Shiraz Bhaiji Jan 14 '10 at 18:30

Found the error, when we were connecting from the remote machine we were using the wrong server name.
