Tricks for Keeping SQL Server Safely


Some simple ways to protect your SQL Server database

1. Using the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) to assess the server's security
MBSA is one of a variety of Microsoft products, which can scan unsafe configuration tools. It can be run locally; you can also run through the network.

2. Isolate your server and regularly back up
Physical and logical isolation would form the basis of SQL Server security. Database should be installed within the enterprise network security area, but not directly connected to the Internet. Back up all data regularly and store copies in a safe location outside the site.

3. Assign a strong SA password for a SA account
SA account should always have a strong password, even if Windows is configured to require authentication of the server. This will ensure that the server has been reconfigured in the future as Mixed Mode authentication; it will not appear blank or weak SA.

4. Restrict the permissions SQL Server service
SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server Agent is running as a Windows service. Each service must be associated with a Windows account, and derive from this account security context. SA log in SQL Server allows the user (sometimes including other users) to access the operating system features.

SQL 2008 SA Password Reset


How to reset sa password in SQL Server 2008 when forgot the sa password?

Many time, This problem comes, they have setup SQL 2008 or SQL 2008 R2 for development or QA environment, but they don't know the login sa password by which they can connect to server. In SQL Server 2005, SQL used to fixed group sysadmin with the server role BUILTINAdministrators, that is to say, all local NT administrator automatically add a SQL Server system administrator. But since 2008 Windows BUILTINAdministrators group is not included by default in the sysadmin server role in SQL Server.

So, follow the steps mentioned to reset SQL 2008 password for SA account if no BUILTINAdministrators.

Step 1. Download and install MS SQL Server Password Unlocker.

Step 2. Run MS SQL Server Password Unlocker, click Open, import the master.mdf file. All the user names of your SQL Server will be displayed.

Step 3. Select an SQL account, such as 'SA', click Change Password button.

Step 4. Type a new password, and then click OK.

The new password has been set for your SA account, now you can login
SQL Server with the new password.

Currently SQL Server 2008 still supports two types validation and authentication for access link to resources database, Windows authentication mode and SQL Server and Windows authentication mode which also known as mixed mode. Both of these authentication methods provide access to SQL Server 2008 and its resources.

The Mixed Mode - SQL Server and Windows Authentication Mode

SQL Server and Windows Authentication Mode uses either Active Directory user accounts or SQL Server accounts when validating access to SQL Server. SQL Server 2005 introduces a new way, the policy of the password and account lockout the policy session of SQL Server by using SQL Server implement authentication. SQL Server 2008 also to do so. The policy of SQL Server that can be used include password complexity, password expiration and account lockout. This feature is not available in SQL Server 2000 and becomes a major security risk for most organizations and database administrators. In essence, this weakness has contributed to the Windows authentication set as best practice for the management of authentication in the past. Today, SQL Server and Windows authentication mode may be able to successfully compete with the Windows Authentication Mode.

Microsoft SQL Server 2000 is a full-featured relational database management system that offers a variety of administrative tools to ease the burdens of database development, maintenance and administration. It operates in one of two authentication modes: Windows Authentication Mode (the default) or Mixed Mode.

When you install the SQL Server 2000, you can log in the server with Windows Authentication and SQL Server Authentication if you select mixed mode authentication. If you select Windows Authentication, you cannot assign a sa password during installation. However, you should set the sa password after installation.

It is very easy for one to set sa password in SQL 2000. Just follow the below steps:

* 1. Expand a server group, and then expand a server.
* 2. Expand Security, and then click Logins.
* 3. In the details pane, right-click SA, and then click Properties.
* 4. In the Password box, type the new password.

The type of client connections determines the choice of security mode. If all of the incoming clients support trusted connections, you can use Windows Authentication Mode. If some clients do not support trusted connections, you can select Mixed Mode.

More information about sa password:

According to Microsoft, System administrator (sa) is a special login provided for backward compatibility. By default, it is assigned to the sysadmin fixed server role and cannot be changed. Although sa is a built-in administrator login, do not use it routinely. Instead, make system administrators members of the sysadmin fixed server role, and have them log on using their own logins. Use sa only when there is no other way to log in to an instance of Microsoft SQL Server.

I am trying to connect to a SQL Server 2005 DB from Visual Studio


You must create an ODBC connection to your SQL database in the Windows Control Panel. Than you can call your ODBC connection via Visual Studio 2005. You can also create a DSN in Visual Studio 2005 and reference in that way. You will not be able to connect to an MDF but instead you have to connect to the SQL Server Service. Of course the username you use to connect must have access that will be created on the SQL server.

How to write jdbc connections


http://www.jdbc-tutorial.com/

window.google_render_ad();

welcome_title_image.gif Java JDBC Tutorial Java JDBC Tutorial
The JDBC ( Java Database Connectivity) API defines interfaces and classes for writing database applications in Java by making database connections. Using JDBC you can send SQL, PL/SQL statements to almost any relational database. JDBC is a Java API for executing SQL statements and supports basic SQL functionality. It provides RDBMS access by allowing you to embed SQL inside Java code. Because Java can run on a thin client, applets embedded in Web pages can contain downloadable JDBC code to enable remote database access. You will learn how to create a table, insert values into it, query the table, retrieve results, and update the table with the help of a JDBC Program example.


window.google_render_ad();
Although JDBC was designed specifically to provide a Java interface to relational databases, you may find that you need to write Java code to access non-relational databases as well.
JDBC Architecture jdbc.jpg Java application calls the JDBC library. JDBC loads a driver which talks to the database. We can change database engines without changing database code.
JDBC Basics - Java Database Connectivity Steps Before you can create a java jdbc connection to the database, you must first import the
java.sql package.
import java.sql.*; The star ( * ) indicates that all of the classes in the package java.sql are to be imported.
1. Loading a database driver,
In this step of the jdbc connection process, we load the driver class by calling Class.forName() with the Driver class name as an argument. Once loaded, the Driver class creates an instance of itself. A client can connect to Database Server through JDBC Driver. Since most of the Database servers support ODBC driver therefore JDBC-ODBC Bridge driver is commonly used.
The return type of the Class.forName (String ClassName) method is “Class”. Class is a class in
java.lang package.
try { Class.forName(”sun.jdbc.odbc.JdbcOdbcDriver”); //Or any other driver } catch(Exception x){ System.out.println( “Unable to load the driver class!” ); } 2. Creating a oracle jdbc Connection

The JDBC DriverManager class defines objects which can connect Java applications to a JDBC driver. DriverManager is considered the backbone of JDBC architecture. DriverManager class manages the JDBC drivers that are installed on the system. Its getConnection() method is used to establish a connection to a database. It uses a username, password, and a jdbc url to establish a connection to the database and returns a connection object. A jdbc Connection represents a session/connection with a specific database. Within the context of a Connection, SQL, PL/SQL statements are executed and results are returned. An application can have one or more connections with a single database, or it can have many connections with different databases. A Connection object provides metadata i.e. information about the database, tables, and fields. It also contains methods to deal with transactions.
JDBC URL Syntax:: jdbc: <subprotocol>: <subname> JDBC URL Example:: jdbc: <subprotocol>: <subname>•Each driver

SQL server won't work on my laptop


Two ways to access your server. First, make sure the SQL Server Service is running. Start | Run | Services.msc | Enter. Look for Microsoft SQL Server Service and that it's running. Or Look for the SQL Service Broker icon by the clock and see that it's running. The default instance of SQL Server uses the Hostname. Start | Run | Cmd | Enter. The type hostname. This will be the name to access to server. Then type IPCONFIG, this is then the IP address that you could also use to access it.

SQL Server runs on port 1433, so any firewall has to have it open.

Open Query Analyzer, type in the hostname or ip of the local box, type in "sa" and the password for sa (if setup in mixed mode) or Windows Authentication.

Once you login in, you should now see the databases in the Tree on the left side under the Server | Databases node.

Your description though states "SQL Server won't work on my laptop". TO answer this, the only two SQL Editions that work on anything other than "SERVER" software is SQL Professional and SQL Developer. All others have to be on a "SERVER" platform.
