Error Message: Invalid user and/or password [error=java.sql.SQLException: Login failed for user

This may be a dumb question but ... 

I am trying to register an instance for dpa but when I enter the sysadmin creds, the same ones I normally use for other SolarWinds activities, and I get the following message below  

"Error Message: Invalid user and/or password [error=java.sql.SQLException: Login failed for user"

kind of stumped as to why this is happening ... if anyone could provide some feedback that would be much appreciated. 

  • Hi

    Some ideas.

    Do you have a tool like SQL Server Management Studio or sqlcmd installed on the DPA server? If so then you can try to make a connection with the same server, user and password as used in the register wizard to verify the connection.

    Another idea is to check the SQL Server Logs.

    I assume you use the domain name before the username, right?



    BTW: What DPA version is used?
