SQL Server databases aren't password protected.  If you use the SA account or logon to windows as an administrator, you should be able to access anything in the database.

Hi,  arbert.

Somebody has set the database so that only they can use it and that person is no longer at the company.  They set themselves as the system admin.

You should still be able to login as a domain admin and get into the database.

Even if he/she removed the BUILTIN login?


You might want to search the web using Google or Teoma -- it's my understanding that SQL p/ws are rather weakly encoded and I think you may find some good "cracking" code.
