Untrusted domain SQL Server 2008 r2 SharePoint

ERROR “Unknown SQL Exception 18452 occured. Additional error information from SQL Server is included below. Login failed. The login is from an untrusted domain and cannot be used with Windows authentication.”

This error took my whole day.

This error comes whenever we try to login SQL server from other machine, like SharePoint machine or if we define this user id during Sharepoint configuration wizard.

I am on SharePoint migration project, and this appears whenever i wanted to access SQL Server 2008 r2 instance from a domain account.

We thought that it is something related to firewall policy, we open the TCP 1433 & UDP 1434 port. But nothing get works.

You will be surprise to know that, the only thing left,, which we made correct and it started working was that SQL Server 2008 R2 server machine time setting was different. The server time was changed from other server machine like SharePoint server. We just ask the Network guy, who installed the Network time service.

After that it started working.
