I became the owner of a sql server (2008), with Enterprise (2008 R2) already installed. It was previously with a person (incompentent dba) that is no longer with the company. My task is bring it on line as a 2nd instance in my environment. The problem is I can't login to the SSMS. I've tried all my network admin login/passwords and it won't open. Is there a default login that comes from MS that I can use to logon and see exactly what I have, what he did, etc.? Thanks in advance.
