SQL and Windows version: Microsoft SQL Server 2017 (RTM-CU19) (KB4535007) - 14.0.3281.6 (X64) Jan 23 2020 21:00:04 Copyright (C) 2017 Microsoft Corporation Developer Edition (64-bit) on Windows Server 2016 Standard 10.0 (Build 14393: ) (Hypervisor)
Servers are in Workgroup.
Our Password Complexity Parameters for SQL login:
- has at least one digit
- has at least one uppercase character
- has at least one special character
- has at least one lowercase character
We are able set initial password for new SQL login as a TestingDB@001 and testingdb@001. But new initial password should be TestingDB@001 NOT testingdb@001 as per above Complexity Parameters. Is this expected behaviour of SQL 2017 for SQL login password?
We have tried to create OS user (non admin windows account), OS level also its taking both passwords (TestingDB@001 and testingdb@001). As per above Complexity Parameters, it should accept only TestingDB@001 password. Is the above SQL login password issue is due to OS?
Please suggest how to achieve above Complexity Parameters in password creation.
