How To: Fix Error 3351 on SharePoint Server – SQL Login Failed


You install SharePoint in a Farm and you see the below error in the event viewer.



Usually this means that your SharePoint Timer Service Account is set to “Local Service Account” rather than the “Domain\Service Account” you created during Install.

You should change the Logon Account in the Services Applet to the Domain Account associated with that Service and your problem should be resolved.

Thank you.
