What permissions do I need to manage users?

P: n/a
I have a user that I have granted the server role "security
administrator" and a database role "db_securityadmin". When logged in
as this user I can create new logins but not run sp_adduser to add the
new login to as this says I don't have permission to do this. I can
however run sp_revokedbaccess to get rid of a user from the database.

Hi, Trevor

Books Online says:
"Only the dbo and members of the sysadmin fixed server role can execute
sp_adduser."

Thanks Razvan.

I'll see if I can use sp_grantdbaccess to the same effect as this isn't
so restrictive in who can execute it.
