Another good thing that’s done at the SQL Server community evenings is a 5 minute slot where anyone can have a go at showing something interesting.
Tony Rogerson got me to open the batting to encourage others to have a go. I am not sure who it was who came up next but it was a simple thing on renaming the infamous sa account…
ALTER LOGIN sa WITH NAME = SECRETSA.
Tony was too keen on leaving his laptop like that in case anything broke so just run the same command again..
ALTER LOGIN SECRETSA WITH NAME = SA.
It’s a useful security tip, especially if you are seeing lots of failed sa logins.
