Direction Connection to ArcSDE Problems

Question asked by jay.gregory on Apr 30, 2012
Latest reply on May 1, 2012 by jay.gregory
I've inherited a SQL & ArcSDE / ArcGIS Server stack (SQL & ArcSDE on one machine, ArcGIS Server on a second).
I'm using the instructions here: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/Geodatabase_connections_in_ArcGIS_Desktop/002q00000031000000/

I can successfully create a connection is I DON'T use the direct connection syntax, and instead use just the port number (5151).  Please see the two images below. 
When I change the service field to use a direct connection string, all the sudden I get a bad login user error, even though I did not change the account credentials.  Any assistance would be appreciated.

This connection doesn't work... (failed to connect to the specified server. Bad login user).
