Important notes:

  • The admin login name cannot be changed after it has been created.
  • If you reset the SQL Database server password during a time when there are active connections to databases on the server, you may want to use the KILL statement to terminate user sessions. This will force client connections to refresh their sessions with the database and the host server.
