I'm installing sql instances through script, and after creating a certain instance, I cannot get the sa account to be enabled through osql.
What I've tried
osql -S .\INSTANCENAME -E
ALTER LOGIN sa ENABLE
Using SSMS to enable the account (by logging in using Windows Auth., 'New query', and exactly the same query as in 1.)
Suggestions in this issue
No. 2. is actually working; and the account is enabled instantly. No 1 is not working, not even with the suggestions provided in 3., I have restarted the SQL services after executing the commands in osql.
Windows 2003 Server, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Enterprise, No password policies apply to the account.
