MSSqlserver error 1069 logon failure


I had an issue with this when I started up my SharePoint 2013 VM. I couldn’t start the MSSqlserver due to a log on error.

I found these steps that seemed to fix the issue.

Steps are:

  • Right click on the Service in the Services mmc
  • Click Properties
  • Click on the Log On tab
  • The password fields will appear to have entries in them…
  • Blank out both Password fields
  • Click “OK”

If that doesn’t work try adding the account and password again.
