Changing the SA password in SQL Server

If you attempt to change the SQL Server SA password through the SQL Server Management Studio, you may get this error message:

Cannot set a credential for principal 'sa'.

The workaround is to tick the checkbox labelled Map to Credential. There is no need to actually select a credential from the drop-down list.
