I installed our SQL Server 2008 R2 Express with Windows Authentication.

I have 3 users who would like to make a connection to our SDE Geodatabase from their ArcGIS 10.1 Desktops.

I added the users and defined each of their their roles as db_datareader. I am using Operating System Authentication (no username or password needed).

They are in the same domain/network as I am. I am the dbo.

They keep getting the attached error message when they try and connectin ArcCatalog - Database Connection - Add Database Connection.
