I am using SQL Server 2005, I keep receiving the following error message: The following error keeps occurring every 30 minutes in error logs. "The specified user account has expired". Has anyone ever come across this error message?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

By default SQL Server Accounts in SQL Server 2005 and newer adhere to the Windows domain policy for password expiration. In SSMS right click on the user in question, and select properties and uncheck either the “Enforce password policy” and/or the “Enforce password expiration” checkboxes.

Or change the password for that account, but when it expires again it will start throwing the error again.
