Can we make SQL Server 2005 passwords for SQL Server logins
case in-sensitive.

Yes but you'd need to turn off the password policy for the login. This is not a good thing.

How do we turn OFF the password Policy in 2005. We are migrating from SQL Server 2000 to 2005 and we have lot of apps that needs to
be changed because of this.

There are three check boxes

Enforce Password polict which is Unchecked but still the passwords are case sensitive.

Even after running this the passwords are still case sensitive. Is there a way to make the passwords in SQL 2005 case insensitive

ALTER LOGIN Test WITH CHECK_POLICY = OFF

Thanks for all the help

Well I meant you have to set the passwords to what you want and it won't allow them to be all lower case unless you turn the policy off. You'll need to modify your passwords.
