When you run a connection test with DB, using Windows authentication, the test works fine:

In addition, there are many checkpoints already working:

However, when you try to create a custom checkpoint, using a custom query, the following (or similar) error is displayed:

In this scenario, when testing the connection with DB, we can see in the probe logs that the windows authentication seems to be enabled, as expected:

Jan 13 17:43:14:090 [1089348] sqlserver: check_connection; from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/53120, service name: xxxxxxx, user: xxxx\xxxxx, winauth: 1, encrpytion: 0, timeout: 5

Jan 13 17:43:14:090 [1089348] sqlserver: (CreateConnString) Starting for profile - test connection profile

However, looking at the DB server logs when the custom query is executed, the request shows the windows authentication is disabled:
