My sa account is getting locked out all the time. I had to change the sa account password and I know it broke a lot of connections in existing mxds. I can't repair these broken links, because once I open the mxd the sa account is locked out again. Is it possible that desktop trying to access the database with the old account is locking the account out. This is incredibly frustrating because I basically have to throw all my affected mxds away since I can't simply repair the connection. Am I correct in my assumption or is something else going on here.
