Windows Authentication Mode (Windows Authentication)

Microsoft Windows Authentication mode allows a user to connect through a Windows user account.

SQL Server Authentication 

When a user connects with a specified login name and password from a non-trusted connection, SQL Server performs the authentication itself by checking to see if a SQL Server login account has been set up and if the specified password matches the one previously recorded. If SQL Server does not have a login account set, authentication fails, and the user receives an error message.


Enter the login to connect with. This option is only available if you have selected to connect using SQL Server Authentication.


Enter the password for the login. This option is only editable if you have selected to connect using SQL Server Authentication. Passwords are measured for strength. It is a good practice to make sure your password is at least seven characters long. To make it stronger, use upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols like (!@#$%^&*<>{}[]?).
