SQL Server 2000 || Disable sa login

Question : How to disable sa user in SQL Server 2000?

Reason : Due to Security requirement of audit, We have to disable sa user for all SQL instances in environment having SQL 2000 \2005\2008 & 2008 R2.

Answer : We can disable sa user from SQL Server 2005 onwards but this is not possible for SQL Server 2000.

We have below system store procedure available in SQL Server 2000 but below is applicable for windows login only.

EXEC sp_denylogin ‘exampleuser’

EXEC sp_revokelogin ‘exampleuser’

The only solution, We can do

1. Change the password to very strong

2. Clear Server Roles

3. Clear all Database Access
