sa user for sql does not have "Securables" listed under login properties

Hey guys- I can only login to the smss interface with a domain admin account at this point.
i have changed the password for sa and tried to login as the sa and have no access.
One thing that i find interesting is that there is an attribute missing called securables for the sa
login.   for the domain admin, it is there.

What does this signify?  could this be part of the problem of why i can't login using the sa account
attached is a screenshot of the sa properties.

the sql server is running in the normal services administrator tool.

It seems you don't have SQL Server installed in that server.
Can you verify in the Add/Remove Programs if you see the SQL Server there?

 Check the SQL server property.  select the Security page and check Server authentication mode if it set to Windows Aithentication, change it to both (SQL server and Windows authentication).

I think securables is no longer visible in SQL server 2012. I have checked in different Editions and service pack everywhere same. However i did not find any documentation for the same. Anyway we can not make any change in SA login  property.

No this is not the reason for SA login failed. I am connecting frequently.

@sql server configuration Manager - not showing any service.

I can see SQL server Native client 10 configuration in the screenshot. It should be 11.0  as you have installed SQL server 2012 on this server.

Can you check "SQLServerManager11.mmc" available here, if it is available , plese try to open it by double click on it.
"C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ "

For 64bit version of sql server, SQLServerManager11.msc location will be C:\Windows\System32\

In addition try to repair the instance as SQL server management objects are not seems to be installed on this server.

Your not going to see securable because SA has access to all objects. Are you sure the SA account is not disabled?
