Not a trusted SQL connection

Not a trusted SQL connection

After I create a SQL database and set up users in the SQL Server Enterprise Manager, then create ODBC connections for the users, I use the Database Maintenance utility to prepare the SQL Server database. When I attempt to open the database that I just created, why does the Database Maintenance utility ask for a Data Source? When I click Cancel, I receive a "Not a trusted SQL connection" error?

Creating a SQL database and users is described in the TestPartner Installation and Configuration Guide. The creation of the database only creates the database; it does not prepare the database for use with TestPartner. In the section of the guide titled "Creating a New SQL Server Database" it explicitly states that in addition to the procedures for creating a database, you must also populate the database with TestPartner tables using the Database Maintenance utility.

In the instructions for Preparing the SQL Server TestPartner Database, it explicitly states that you must open the Database Maintenance utility and select NEW Database from the File menu. If you select OPEN Database frm the File menu, the Database Maintenance utility asks for a Data Source, and if you click Cancel to that message, you will receive the "Not a trusted SQL connection" error.
