Another option you could try is to use ettercap to insert your
laptop/pen-test system in as a Man-in-the-Middle between the SQL server
and client systems and then capture the port 1433 traffic using
tcpdump/ethereal/your favorite packet capturing program. This will
definitely yield the 'sa' password (as well as others).
If you're using Windows on your attack platform, consider using Cain &
Abel as it can do the Man-in-the-Middle/SQL password capture all in one.
