Here is a scenario that I am going through and need your opinion on this.
One of the app guy is asking to login to their server with SA acct since the vendor is there to install an application.
We only built the server for them, we do not have access to the server....however, we created the SA acct(SQL Authentication) during the instllation.
Since I didn't have access to the server, I could not RDP to it....so, the guy shared the screen with me and gave me control and I tried to login with SA acct, however failed. This is SQL 2008, default instance. The error was related to some Shared memory, shared memory was enabled at the config mgr, don't remember the whole error now. I have a feeling that I am missing something here.
Anyway, I just want to touch base with you guy and see if I am doing this correctly. Did anyone went through similar situation? Is there any other way you can login with SA acct? Please advise.
