You have lost or forgotten the SA password for you SQL Server box!!
This is really easy to fix.
On the server do the following:
- Launch Powershell as an administrator
- Answer “Y” when prompted (twice for me).
Reset-DbaAdmin -SqlServer localhost\SQLEXPRESSS
(or whatever your database is, a “.” will suffice for a standard default sql installation”)
- Answer “Y” to the prompts
- Enter your new sa password when prompted
That should be it.
Try logging in as “sa” with your new password and you can now are good to go.
