Can I Change A SQL Server Everywhere Database's Password?

Jun 20, 2006

Hi, I'm using the SQL Server Everywhere CTP on the desktop and haven't used SQL Server Mobile in the past.

I'm having some difficulty determining whether it's possible to change a SQL Server Everywhere database's password. Obviously authentication on a file-based SQL Server Everywhere database differs from that of server-based SQL Server database. Is it possible to change a SQL Server Everywhere database's password?

That said, I feel like I've made a decent search of the to change a SQL Server Everywhere books online. If it's not possible to change the password in place (i.e., without copying all data to a new file with a different password), please count this as a vote to add that functionality. Making a database password "permanent" lessens its effectiveness. Thanks,

Using 'Alter Login' To Change Password In SQL Server 2005

Sep 26, 2006

Please Help!!

We have an application using SQLOLEDB connection to a SQL Server 2005 database. Per domain policy, the users are required to change their password every 60 days.

The accounts are established to 'Enforce password policy'.

When we try to execute the 'ALTER LOGIN' command to change the password, locks are being established and will not free the account without bouncing the instance.

After issuing the command, any interaction with the server using this UserID results in a "lock request time out" error 1222.

I have tried issuing this command using both the application and through SQLServer Mgmt Studio Express and the results are the same.

Any idea would be greatly appreciated.

I Can't Change My Sql Login User's Password In SQL Server 2005 Express

Jan 13, 2006

SQL Server 2005 Express keeps putting in a different password than the one I chose.  I would check the properties on the login I want to change.  Then I change the password and it gets accepted.  When I try my web application, I get the dreaded "login failed for <loginname>".  I look at the properties again and see my password never change.  Is this a bug?  I ever tried this syntax to no avail:

SQL Server 2012 :: Password History Table

May 7, 2014

I have a table of users including: UserName, Password (comuted col), FirstName, LastName, Address and other details....

I have to keep 10 Recent passwords , so I created another table "ut_Password " (Table2)

This table contains the following columns : Username, Password , and Password_Date.

I searched a lot but could not find something similar in my opinion need SP for it.

- 10 row Max for Password History in table 2
- when user change password it's need to be uniqe and it should not appear last 10 passwords
- Each user can have a maximum of 10 lines containing history password table
- Most old password deleted and replaced with a new password will enter the correct date (FIFO method first in first out).

SQL Server 2012 :: How To Get Row Of First Change

May 12, 2015

I would like to get extract the first row of some time based data where any of the other values changes. For example, in the following 10 rows


I want to remove the rows where A and B are the same as on the previous row. So rows 2, 3, 7 and 9 should be eliminated. Note that A and B can have the same values multiple times, just not in succession in the extract. I've tried ranking but I can't figure out how to keep it from lumping all the values of A and B in the same group. The following incorrectly eliminates rows 5 and 8:

;with data as (
select 1 as A, 1 as B, '2015-01-01' as DTE union
select 1 as A, 1 as B, '2015-01-02' as DTE union
select 1 as A, 1 as B, '2015-01-03' as DTE union
select 2 as A, 1 as B, '2015-01-04' as DTE union

[Code] .....

Of course the real data has many columns and multiple data types that can have nulls. I just want get the row when anything changes. Is there a slick way to do this in SQL?

Change Password On Sql 2000?

Apr 4, 2008

I am trying to change password, using the code below.. The code below is in a stored proc and I am passing these parameters from a web application.....
 sp_password [ [ @old = ] 'old_password' , ]     { [ @new =] 'new_password' }     [ , [ @loginame = ] 'login' ]
sp_password 'cust1','cust2','cust1'
Server: Msg 15210, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_password, Line 20Only members of the sysadmin role can use the loginame option. The password was not changed.
I made my user part of the db_securityadmin role, but that does not help...
How can I give the above mentioned permissions, so that when user cust1 logs on then he can chnage his own password from the web application as long he has given his old password correctly?

Osql -- Change Password

Apr 3, 2001

When using osql from a command prompt the following script was run:
EXEC sp_password 'Current Password', '', 'TestLogin'

We were trying to set a password for a login to blank, but now cannot access login into the application because the application was looking a blank password for this user but the password would not work for blank.

Note ---This client only has MSDE installed, not SQL Enterprise.

If the script is run from Query Analyzer it works fine.

The script should have been this:
EXEC sp_password 'Current Password', Null, 'TestLogin'

It should have explictly stated NULL for the new password but it wasn't done.

Is there anyway to reset the password without knowing the existing password.
No other logins exist. They tried logging into the system with no password, '',"".
I am not sure what the password was set to.
