Q

Can't log in with 'sa' and 'password'

I am facing a problem when logging in to SQL Server 2000. When I log in using the Windows Integrated Authentication mode, it works fine, but when I log on using "sa" and "password," I get an error, saying sa does not have a trusted relationship... or something like that.

That is because someone has set the security for the server to accept integrated only. When set that way, you can

not log in using a standard SQL Server login.
