SQL server shows this 28000 error message

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -


When I try to log in to SQL server I have this 28000 error message. Also, recently I have made an update to my MAC and I think that’s may be the problem. I never experienced such problem before and I am a bit confused. Anyone here can help me with this error and tell me how can I solve it ?

Thanks !

You have to be sure that no other SQL instances running that might be using the localhost post. In such a case it would conflict with the login and turning it off solves the problem. You also need to supply a definite password for your user.  From the Server Management Studio select the radio button to make it accept both Windows and SQL Server mode of authentication.
