Hello Robert,

As per this article from Microsoft Knowledge Base, it sounds like that either the user that you're trying to connect to the database doesn't have the necessary privileges or its login doesn't exist. Could you please double check the security settings on the database and the necessary accesses for this user?

And remember JIRA does not support Windows based authentication to SQL server. You need to have mixed mode authentication enabled in SQL server and also the user used should be an SQL user.

Point 6 on this documentation.
