SQL Server 2000 - Login issues

I have a weird issue. There are a couple of SQL logins (on SQL 2000), I am able to connect to SQL using these logins using SSMS/ Enterprise Manager either locally/ remotely. These logins are used by a couple of webservers and Filenet. I had run a trace and I see the logins getting failed in the trace file. I was struggling with this issue for the last 36 hours, I couldn't figure out what the issue is. I had deleted the logins and recreated them with the same ID/ password, and the issue didn't get resolved Can you please give some inputs as to what might be the issue and how this can be resolved? Can I ask them to renter the credentials in all the places they use? If I may ask the app. teams to delete and reenter the credentials, where should I ask them to make the changes? (For ex: Connection string, IIS service etc). Please let me know. Thanks in advance.

You are seeing the errors, but manage to login manually? I suggest tracing the failed logins to find the host name of the connections that are failing. This should show you which clients are using invalid connection settings. You then re-check their settings and the issue should be solved.
