forgotten fsfdb password

Hello,

I feel like a typical user.

I've recently moved offices and now in the process of updating my NSM AD installation to 4.0.1.

The problem is I have forgotten the SQL password and cannot find my installation notes. I've tried a bunch of things to get around this including uninstalling NSM and deleting SQL directories without any luck. There is no uninstall for SQL in control panel, I'm guessing NSM installed the run time version.

Oh this is my development box, so it doesn't matter if I loose the database. I can not blow away the whole machine because of other applications running on the box.

Any suggestions on how to clean this up is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Allen

Allen,
Storage Manager requires that the SQL db is setup in mixed
authentication mode, please use SSMS, to log into the db with the
Windows user who setup the db. Once your logged in you should be able
to reset the SA password.

Hope this helps,
Rich Lagger
Product Specialist.
