Hello, Noticed below error message in application logs for job failure,in sql 2008 Login failed for user Mali/carlos Reason :Failed to open the explicitly specified database. [CLIENT:XXXXXX] is this somting authenticaiton error? please advise. rgds.
If it's an explicitly specified database, check the connection string to see which database you're trying to connect to. Then make sure the login is mapped to a user in that database. It could well be that they had once been granted access using the guest user, but that this user has since been disabled.
