  • I'd probably say don't ever use the sa password. It's a bad practice. Create a specific server login and give it the sysadm server role and use that instead.  Having said this then your process only changes the password for the SAP database and not for the actual SLD service itself (same for B1i). If the SLD was configured to use the sa user and password then the SLD will not be able to read it's own database to then be able to use the credentials you are changing.

    • Does that mean that it is a bad practice to change the password from the SLD as well? Then what would be the best way if you need to change the password of the SQL user?

      • Hi Paul

        No. By all means the process is good but just to say when installing don't use SA as a login. Create a new SQL Login with the sysadm server role and use that instead.
