“Cannot generate SSPI context”

This is another interesting error message that recently popped up when connecting to an SQL2005 server. It reminding me of some problems that I had installing SQL2005 3 years ago. Then the error was that the service account that the SQL Server was using had insuficient access rights. This time our friends in IT made the IP addresses of our servers DHCP. Unfortunately they made a mistake making a mixup of IP and server name which caused this problem.
