    Hello,
    I have an account on a SQL 2005 server that consultants created 2 years ago. I don't seem to have the password for this account. I need to recover the password. I can't simply change it as it is used by an Oracle application. Is there a way to recover this password?
    Thanks,
    Sachin

    If you have enough permission on sql server, why not forget about that account and create new with same permissions. It will be easy for you to manage.
