Connect to SQL Server Management Studio, go to the properties of the ca_itrm user account and uncheck the enforce password policy. 

re-set the password to default NOT_changedR11 using the below command: 

cadsmcmd setDBCredentials passwd=NOT_changedR11 

Try to login using ca_itrm \ NOT_changedR11 

Change the new  password using cadsmcmd  after ca_itrm \ NOT_changedR11  login works.
