BUG #: 56282 (SQLBUG_70)


The SQL Enterprise Manager reports a Login failed message when trying to edit or run a Data Transformation Services (DTS) package. All of the following conditions need to be met for this error to occur:

  • SQL Server 7.0 is registered using standard security in SQL Enterprise Manager.
  • The option "Always prompt for login and password" is selected.
  • The password of the account is not null.

When the preceding conditions are met and the registered user tries to edit or run a local DTS package, they receive the following error message:

Error Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server
Error Description: Login failed for user '<registered user>'


The error can be avoided if the user selects "Save Connection information and do not prompt again" upon connecting to the registered server in the SQL Enterprise Manager.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 2 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
