I installed SQL Server 2008. During the install I set it to mixed mode authentication and set the password for what I assume is the
sa account. In the configuration manager I set
named pipes to enabled.
When I open SQL Server Management Studio and try to log in -
username: sa, password: whatIjustsetintheinstall, it fails with the error:
Login failed for user sa. (error 18456). The error in Event Viewer is - Login failed for user 'sa'. Reason: Password did not match that for the login provided. [CLIENT: <local machine>].
I know the password is right because I just set it. What am I doing wrong here? Is
sa not the right user to be logging in with mixed mode? I've been reading through forum after forum but just cannot find anything that works.
