Authentication fails logging in to SQL Server Express, regular SQL Server OK


Recommended Posts

All versions of 7.7 (including 7.7.208) are unable to log in to SQL Server Express 2005 servers to back up databases. I get an Authentication Error, whether I'm using my RBU credentials, SQL authentication, or type in the RBU info manually.


The same setups work fine with the full (non-Express) version of SQL Server 2005. Something changed between 7.6 and 7.7 to break SQL Server Express log-in capability; it works fine on 7.6.123.
