I have lost my SA password for MSDE used by ISA 2004. Is there anyway to recover this? I have done numerous Google searches for this and have tried several things. I am unable to connect to the database using Windows authentication (which is what most of them suggest).
If I can't get connected, what are my options? Can I reinstall MSDE without disrupting ISA too much? This is a production server so that needs to be taken into account. Thanks.
You can reset the SQL log in password in two ways. If you are skilled SQL command, you can reset sa password with some simple codes like [osql -U sa -P ”" -Q ”sp_password NULL,<newpassword>,sa”] . If you have no ideal about SQL command, I would like to recommend you to free download MS SQL Server Password Unlocker, which helps to instantly change SQL password without data loss.
Personally, I would like to use SQL password changing tool, like MS SQL Server Password Unlocker. I have no ideal about the sql commands and other setting but I forgot sql password. My friend recommended me MS SQL Server Password Unlocker, and I used it. Just one click, I reset the SA password Reference: http://blog.passwordunlocker.com/password%20recovery/sql-password-recovery/
