Change password for user 'sa'

By gogulatorul,

The CHECK_POLICY and CHECK_EXPIRATION options cannot be turned OFF when MUST_CHANGE is ON Last week one of my team members was supposed to create a SQL Authenticated ID on a SQL Server 2005 instance. This was as per the request of the Application team who would be using it for an Application. Since this is a routine task, the DBA created the ID. After passing on the credentials to the Application team, they started complaining that the application is unable to connect to the database using that ID. When the DBA tried connecting to the instance using that ID he got Reason: The password of the account has an expired error.
