I'm copying our database to a test environment and I was to make all passwords = 'password' for all the users.  Is there a script that will do this for me?  I can't seem to find it for 2000.

Thanks!

I suggest use "Method 1" from article posted below and before you run the script generated from the source SQL server you do a find/replace all and put whatever password you want for all in there:

--code below should do it; naturally you must be a sysadmin to run the code.

DECLARE cursor_logins CURSOR FAST_FORWARD FOR
SELECT name
FROM dbo.syslogins
WHERE
    isntname = 0

DECLARE @name sysname

OPEN cursor_logins

WHILE 1 = 1
BEGIN
    FETCH NEXT FROM cursor_logins INTO @name
    IF @@FETCH_STATUS <> 0
        BREAK
    EXEC sp_password @new = 'password', @loginame = @name
END --WHILE

DEALLOCATE cursor_logins
