We lost of Orion SQL Server SA Password

Jump to solution

How can we recover or replace our SQL server SA password?  We might be using a default password - the man who installed the software left without documenting the password.

Can you help me?

I have run PsExec but nothing has happened. Does that method work with SQL Server 2016? Thanks!

I've spent several hours and still couldn't figure it out. Afterwards, I used another method to recover access to my sa account.

Problem solved!

MProbus,

Thank you.

Wow - our brain trust worked on this for weeks.  Your response was very quick.  We need to talk about this, have meetings, do lunch - before we can try this out.

It looks like the answer.

Thank you.

I will update the correct answer - field and anything else once my brain trust tries out the update.

Thank you!
