Dear experts,

Hello vinod,

Go to the folder security;
Double click on the user;
Change the password (don't forget it!!!)
Pressing on the Ok button;
Repeat the password.

In principle, if you press as password of only one character, for security reasons sqlserver 2000 will show you as password 10 stars.

For testing create a new user and change the password.

Good luck,

on 'edit sql registration properties' window, use windows authentication first. after u've logon, change the password on Security->Logins section.

You can use command prompt to change the password.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Osql -S yourservername -E 
  2. 1> EXEC sp_password NULL, 'yourpassword', 'sa'
  3. 2> GO
