This event is logged because the EventSentry agent could not connect to the database specified in the "Test ODBC" target. The error message will include the error reported by the actual ODBC driver.

In the above message, the reason for the error is that the user account 'eventsentry_svc' failed to log in to the database. Verify the password stored in EventSentry possibly reset the password on the database server.

EventSentry supports various notifications such as SMTP (Email), ODBC (Database), SNPP (Pager) and more. New targets can be added by right-clicking on the notifications container and selecting "Add Target".
