I have a SQL server 2012 setup to use windows authentication.

Remotely I can connect to "Server A" no problem with domain credentials but when I try to locally connect to "Server A" with SSMS it errors out to say that there is a login failure.

I have all the correct permissions set I beleive any other suggestions?

When you connect locally, are you logged-in to Windows using a domain account? – Max Vernon Oct 1 '13 at 16:06
What is the state and the rest of the message (check the error log)? See… – Aaron Bertrand Oct 1 '13 at 16:09
@MaxVernon right. are you logged in as a domain user or are you logged in as a local admin. are you logged in locally using the same domain account as you are when you login remotely? also, please note that you cannot simply rely on BUILTIN\Administrators as of SQL Server 2008. – swasheck Oct 1 '13 at 16:11
