Just asked the DBA - we only use Windows Auth...?
I wouldn't know specific credentials. I know that is totally not helpful to you or anyone else trying to help to be able to perform this step. I'll see if I can get a test user created.
Would you have any other hints?
Also, would you know if this "Tableau Admin" user is technically the one who is making the call to the database? Because he/she/it does not have access to the needed database or will it get permissions. (I've never seen something like this - what little Server Admin work I have with Tableau has never been like this)

Tableau Admin is most likely the runas user setup for your server environment.
So the options that I know of:
1. Enable Tableau Admin to have select privileges in your database.
2. Change to a specific userid / password that has the privileges.
3. Use Kerberos delegation which requires some additional Tableau server setup. Enable Kerberos Delegation
Based on the error message including [ODBC Driver 13 for SQL Server], no SQL Server drivers have been installed on the Tableau Server computer, and the default drivers that come with Windows are attempting to be used. Install the recommended Drivers from the Drivers page and see if that resolves the issue
