SQL Authenticated User Inherited Password Policy Problems

Filed under: Uncategorized — solutionsthroughit @ 13:27

Had a SQL authenticated username that wasn’t playing ball.  After some slight hair-tearing and chasing my tail, I identified that the user had an inherited password policy set – this wasn’t cleared at account creation.  Rather than re-creating the account, I used the following SQL statement, to change the user’s account, making it all work – hurray 🙂

ALTER LOGIN "Username" WITH CHECK_EXPIRATION = OFF

ALTER LOGIN "Username" WITH CHECK_POLICY = OFF

Jobs done.
