The easiest way to reset sql sa password.

无标题文档 The easiest way to reset sql sa password. One of my friends complained that: I am not a sql db manager by any means but I've been asked to reset sa password for a sql 2005 server. My concern is ...will changing this password have any effect on applications that use sql 2005. They use Micro CRM 3.0, and I don't want to disrupt their service. The reason they want to reset the password is because they recently bought a new accounting package that will tie into CRM, and the technicians are requesting the password to complete the install.
In fact, MS SQL Server Password Unlocker can reset sql password in no snap! Just install the sa password recovery program on the computer where the sql master.mdf is saved. MS SQL Server Password Unlocker accesses to the master.mdf file directly and lists all the users to the database. For accessing the master.mdf smoothly, the password recovery program detects and stops the running SQL Services automatically
