Unanswered: sql server access denied by non trusted connection
hi at all, i know that in here there was a lot of thread over this argument, but none can helps me.
I'm newbie on sqlserver. I'm first installed an instance of SQL Server 2000 with enterprise manager.
As previous topics i cannot log into server because 'sa' user is not associated with a trusted connection. In installation time i selelected "windows only" authentication (because in mixed mode at end of installation i caught an error and installation was canceled). Now i **must** to connect with "sa" user, because i must to connect on sql server via jdbc driver from a java application. So i really cannot use windows authentication, but i must use sql authentication.
Someone, ***please*** (i'm really deprived of hope, i spent 1 entire day to install correctly server and client components!!!!), can guide me to configure my installed sql server instance to accept connections with sql authentication?
My sql server version is 8.00.194.
thank you jora, i did it many times, (while waiting an angel response ), but this never affects that property. Every time i see server properties the authentication come back to "windows only". After many many many tries i've checked "autostart MSDTC" flag...and, finally, it works fine!
thank you for your time. Problem solved.
