Hi,

I have sql 2k8 R2 working OK. from last few days my 'sa' password is getting re-set automatically. i know it is not possible but it is happening to me.

Create a trace (or look in the default trace) for security events. I can't remember offhand which event it is, Books Online will have details.

p.s. Why are you using the sa login? That login should be disabled.
