24011: Reset password failed

Event 24011 occurs when a user attempts to reset another user's SQL server login password and fails. It mostly occurs when a privileged user (administrator) tries to reset the password of other users. This event is generated by the LOGIN_CHANGE_PASSWORD_GROUP action group. Administrators can derive important information from this event including the:

  • Date and time at which the event occurred.
  • Session identifier of the event.
  • ID, name, and type of the target object (in this case, the SQL server login).
