    Unanswered: Unable to login SQLSrvr 7.0 with 'sa' user


    I am running into a problem loggin into SQLsrver 7.0 using 'sa' account but works fine admin account(NT acct)

    I have installed sqlsrvr 7.0 on win2k - server standard edition. Installed SQLserver using NT domain account. I have created a username 'sa' with admin previleges. When I try to login with sa, login fails in the enterprise manager. ?

    I tried to re-install the server7.0 using local account, again unable to login with 'sa' account in the enterprise manager

    Appreciate if you could shed some lights on this issue

    Don't really remember SQL 7 , haven't touch it for a long time,

    Err..did u install it in mix mode? Mix mode= Windows NT Authetication and SQL Server Authetication.

    "SA" is a SQL Server login, and u must enable SQL Server & Windows Authetication before the "SA" password can work.

    If using SQL 2000, u can go to EM, on the server name node, right click->propreties->Security->Authentication->Select "SQL Server and Windows radio button".

    It might be abit different in SQL 7, but give it a try.
