...which begs a question:

Why in the name of God's greasy gonads did the TDP for SQL group build
sqldsmc.exe's code to require that I put a password for an SQL server's
system administrator ID in *clear test*? We're in danger of losing a
customer's TDP for SQL business because that system administrator's
password has to sit out there stark naked in a batch file. The TDP for
SQL's GUI interface allows you to enter the password once and have it
encrypted. Why in *hell* can't the command-line version use that
encrypted password?
