We have been remediating our Servers using Retina and GoldDisk as our survey tools. We had to update our SQL 2005 SA password and got this error.  Also our systems were pushed out Symantec 10.1.6000. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Have you tried running this query?
 

sp_password @old = null, @new = 'new_password',  @loginame ='sa'

Open in new window

Have found that the error only occurs when I have the EnPasFlt.dll from NSA installed.
When I remove this from the registry (HKLM/System/Control/LSA/Notification packages) and from the c:/windows/system32 folder, I can change the password with no problem.

Could the Enpasflt.dll file be corrupt?

I found the problem - it was a bad version of the EnPasFlt.dll file - (dated 4/2007).
Installing the same file dated 1/2000 works fine.
Thanks for your help.
