What to do when the SA account password is lost in SQL Server 2005 and you can not find anyone in the sysadmin role
I hasten to add that this has not happened to me (so far), but I wanted to record for future reference. Raul Garcia's blog post Disaster Recovery: What to do when the SA account password is lost in SQL Server 2005 lists a step by step procedure for disaster recovery in such a situation.(Note: Raul's blog has moved to the SQL Server Security blog).
