Hi,

I have created account with SQL Server Authentication type in Server Security folder, unchecked "Enforce Password Policy" option and assign "public" and" sysadmin" server roles.

When I tried to connect using this account I got next message:


TITLE: Connect to Server
------------------------------

Cannot connect to SQLServer.

------------------------------
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Login failed for user 'act_user'. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 18456)

For help, click: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?ProdName=Microsoft+SQL+Server&EvtSrc=MSSQLServer&EvtID=18456&LinkId=20476

------------------------------
BUTTONS:

OK
------------------------------

After that, I mapped it to database and assign dbo schema.

Anyway I cannot connect to SQL server using this account. (I can connect to the server using Windows account)

Can you please advise how to resolve this issue?

Thx in advance.
