Login failed for user 'sa'


At various times an error message, "login fail for user 'sa'" appears by itself or along side other text


1. You may have another SQL Server application running for which the administrative user/password is not 'sa'/''sysadmin' which is the default our installation requires.

2. Appears with other error text indicating a failed restore or failed backup


1. For cause #1 above, change Server Settings and enter correct uderid/password if known

2. For cause #2 above, refer to FAQ# 158 and apply it to the SERVER,

then on the WORKSTATION just open company and point to ncd file created.
