Windows authentication mode: When a user connects through a Windows® user account, SQL Server validates the account name and password using information in the Windows operating system. Windows Authentication uses Kerberos security protocol, provides password policy enforcement (complexity validation for strong passwords), supports account lockout, and supports password expiration.
Mixed Mode (SQL Server and Windows authentication and SQL Server Authentication): Enter and confirm the system administrator (sa) password when you select Mixed Mode authentication. Setting strong passwords is essential to the security of your system. Never set a blank or weak sa password.
If you selected Mixed Mode, you are prompted to enter a password for the system administrator (sa) account. If you selected Windows authentication mode, the installation continues using the account specified in Entering vRanger service credentials.
