Login failed for user 'mbam'

Recommended Posts


when logging in to the management console I'm getting the error
Login failed for user 'mbam'

This is our database user. The user isn't locked or deactivated. Is there any possibility to change the password or to reenter at the mbam management server?


Thanks in advance

Was the SQL account setup with enforcepassword policy and / or password can expire? There is no place to change this password externally, you'll need to either start up SQL Management Studio and change the SQL logon back to what it was originally, or uninstall/reinstall MBMC and use the SQL logon's new password when pointing it to the SQL instance. If you need to have the password expire for change control, you will need to create two SQL accounts and switch between them before the password expires.
