Hi Experts!

I got this information inside Event Viewer -> Windows Logs -> Application

Log Name:      Application
Source:        MSSQLSERVER
Date:          5/12/2013 12:41:22 AM
Event ID:      18456
Task Category: (4)
Level:         Information
Keywords:      Classic,Audit Failure
User:          N/A
Computer:      Keywordserver
Description:
Login failed for user 'sa'. [CLIENT: <local machine>]
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
  <System>
    <Provider Name="MSSQLSERVER" />
    <EventID Qualifiers="49152">18456</EventID>
    <Level>0</Level>
    <Task>4</Task>
    <Keywords>0x90000000000000</Keywords>
    <TimeCreated SystemTime="2013-05-11T16:41:22.000Z" />
    <EventRecordID>204233209</EventRecordID>
    <Channel>Application</Channel>
    <Computer>Keywordserver</Computer>
    <Security />
  </System>
  <EventData>
    <Data>sa</Data>
    <Data> [CLIENT: &lt;local machine&gt;]</Data>
    <Binary>184800000E0000000E0000004B004500590057004F00520044005300450052005600450052000000070000006D00610073007400650072000000</Binary>
  </EventData>
</Event>

afterwards it is like this:

Log Name:      Application
Source:        MSSQLSERVER
Date:          5/12/2013 12:40:55 AM
Event ID:      18454
Task Category: (4)
Level:         Information
Keywords:      Classic,Audit Success
User:          N/A
Computer:      Keywordserver
Description:
Login succeeded for user 'sa'. Connection: non-trusted. [CLIENT: <local machine>]
Event Xml:
<Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
  <System>
    <Provider Name="MSSQLSERVER" />
    <EventID Qualifiers="16384">18454</EventID>
    <Level>0</Level>
    <Task>4</Task>
    <Keywords>0xa0000000000000</Keywords>
    <TimeCreated SystemTime="2013-05-11T16:40:55.000Z" />
    <EventRecordID>204233208</EventRecordID>
    <Channel>Application</Channel>
    <Computer>Keywordserver</Computer>
    <Security />
  </System>
  <EventData>
    <Data>sa</Data>
    <Data> [CLIENT: &lt;local machine&gt;]</Data>
    <Binary>164800000A0000000E0000004B004500590057004F00520044005300450052005600450052000000070000006D00610073007400650072000000</Binary>
  </EventData>
</Event>

I noticed that this occurs every 30 seconds.

I also tried to check the SQL Server 2005 database to test login for "sa". It seems good but I'm bothered with this information.

Thank you.

If not used by some application, simply change the sa password and see what happens.
