    Unanswered: Side by side upgrade and login passwords

    I've recently done a side by side upgrade of a mssql 2000 to mssql 2005 instance. I'm having problems with 1 login that I've been told had a password that was only 3 characters in length. They don't seem to be able to log in with it. I get an error with a state of 8 meaning it's the password. Is there an issue with migrating the id and password as is into the 2005 instance? None of the other ids are having the problem, they all seem to work and have longer passwords.
    Any help is appreciated.

    will sp_password fix this issue?
    “If one brings so much courage to this world the world has to kill them or break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.
