Knowledgebase: SQL Server 2005
Password Policy
Posted by - NA - on 06 July 2009 01:31 PM

SQL Server 2005:

When using the SQL Server 2005 password policy, you must follow the Windows policy standards when creating the NotifyLink user during the SQL component installer. If you fail to follow the policy standards when creating a password for the NotifyLink user, the installer will fail at the end saying "Database was not installed".

Please refer to SQL Server online at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms161959.aspx to view the way the policies are enforced with Windows Server 2003 and Windows 2000 Server.
