I was locked out of my SQL Server database yesterday as I forgot my SA account password. But thanks to SQL Password Tuner, this powerful tool helped me to reset my SA forgotten password without the old password to login. Now I can login my SQL Server 2008 and unlock my database with the new password.
Very appreciate! With the help of SQL Password Tuner, I reset my password and login into my SQL Server 2005 to open my database successfully.
It is very simple and easy, just need a few clicks, no any technique requirement to use this tool.
My former coworker left, but he didn't leave his SQL Server user account password to us, so I have to use SQL Password Tuner to reset a new password on his user account.
I don't want to install the SQL Password Tuner software on my Server PC, so I copy the master.mdf file from the Server PC to my laptop, and use SQL Password Tuner to reset my SA forgotten password on my laptop, and then copy the master.mdf file back to my Server computer. It is a little complicated, but now I can login my SQL Server successfully.
