Linking Windows SQL Login to user database

Hi,

I am migrating SQL 2000 database from one machine to another using the
detach/attach method. I used the TSQL
script sp_help_revlogi n procedure provided by microsoft to copy the
logins, this work for SQL Logins but not Window
Login.

I am able to logon to the SQL Server with the Window Login but have no
access to databases that I have right to
access. The Window Login name appears under the database's User node
but the value under the 'login name' is empty. So to relink it, I
change the database system table sysusers sid to match the Window
Login sid, this works but is there a better way to do this?
Is there a way to create Window Login with a specific security id
similar to how the SQL Login are create in sp_help_revlogi n, cause I
am aware that SQL 2005 doesn't allow you to change system tables so
this way of doing it isn't very robust.

Thanks

SELECT 'EXEC sp_grantlogin ''' + name + ''''
FROM master.sys.sysl ogins
WHERE isntname = 1 OR isntgroup = 1

You should not have to play with sids for Windows logins, as they
should be the same on both servers.

Hello, I am having trouble using Integrated Windows Authentication between our intranet server and our database server, both of which are on our local domain. Windows authentication works for our intranet server - my domain user "DOM\nme" is correctly authenticated and authorized to view the ASP.NET page on our intranet. The ASP.NET application uses impersonation (<identity impersonate="true"> in Web.config).

I've got an application running with table-based security: i capture the user's windows login with fOsusername, then have them enter a password checked against their username/login in my own table.

I have the task to set up an application at work,using MS Access as a front end to a MySQL database. This will be done using an appropriate ODBC driver, and linking the MySQL database to Access.

If so, then I can set up users and access grants in MySQL...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
