you should paste the whole error;
when i googled "error -2146893044"
i found "error -2146893044: The logon attempt failed " in the first 3 links, but it seemed to be referencing network logins more than sql logins....
could it be that password was changed or something?, maybe they need to log out of windows and then back in to fix the security context?
