Thank you for posting this idea. The SA password is not stored in the web.config file. If it is not the default, the console will prompt for the correct password.

There is also an issue when using non-default SA passwords and using a backup script (connectivity.ADMSconsole). The SA password is exposed in the backup script in plain text - which is a security issue.
