After changing my network password, I went straight to the SQL Server Configuration Manager (SQL Server 2008) to update the passwords for the SQL Server and SQL Agent services. (Background info: the services run under my domain account.)
However, I kept getting the below error after clicking on apply:
The specified network password is not correct. [0x80070056]
I guarantee the password entered was definitely the correct one because I have restarted my workstation and used it to log on successfully. Most answers on the web tend to focus on the password but I know that's just the symptom not the root cause.
I know it is difficult to answer questions like this one unless you have experienced it first-hand. So I am asking if anyone else has seen this behavior before and what they did to resolve it.
