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.

Can you post the connection string being used by your applications?

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.
