Problem Adding Securityadmin Role To Sa In 2005

Aug 9, 2007

Hi Guys,

I'm trying to add the securityadmin server role to the sa user but have been unable to due to an error occuring. The error says "Add member failed for server role 'securityadmin'. Cannot use the special principal 'sa' Microsoft SQL Server error 15405."

I assumed that the sa account would already have the required permission to perform most operations on the server but I have been asked to try assiging this server role to sa by a support guy for our third party product.

Has anyone got any ideas why this error is occuring? I have been looking on loads of forums but cannot find anything relevant to me.

Thanks in advance for any help!

SQL Server 2005 / Securityadmin Role / SSMS

May 8, 2007

Experiencing a little weirdness with SQL Server Management Studio...Have created a login, that has fixed server role "securityadmin".The login can create/drop logins, add/remove them as users indatabases, etc.The login can change another login's password, using SQLfrom a query window (e.g. alter login bob with password='abc')However, the login *cannot* change another login's password,using SSMS GUI (e.g. "Security", "Logins", double-click "Bob",change password, say "OK"). The error text is:Change password failed for Login 'Bob'. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)Additional information:An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement orbatch.(Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)Cannot alter the login 'Bob', because it does not exist or you donot have permission.(Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 15151)Has anybody else experienced this?

Adding A Member For Database Role

Nov 8, 2000


I have a login 'testuser' on test server.
This login was 'db_datareader' for database called 'invent_test' on test server.
I deleted the whole database and restored the production backup as 'invent_test' database.
Now I am trying to modify login 'testuser' by adding it as 'db_datareader' for 'invent_test' again but it gives me an error that 'this user or role already exists for current database'.

I can not see 'db_datareader' or even 'invent_test' options selected in login properties for 'testuser'. Also I can not find 'testuser' in database roles
-->db_datareader member list.
Is this a bug with sql server 7.0? Or how should I give this user priviledges to read?

I dropped the login and recreated it. Server is also rebooted meanwhile so there is no possibility for cashe problem. Still same error is there.
Is there any thing that I am missing here?

I really appreciate your help. I am very frustrated now.

Adding Users To A Role In Bulk

Feb 23, 2004

I have a need to add all the users listed in the sysxlogins table to the db_datawriter role. I wrote a proc that does this. It indicates that each user is successfully added to the role, but they aren't. If I look at the user in EM, they don't have that role checked. I've tried all the obvious stuff like close EM and re-open, doesn't help.

Here is the proc
CREATE proc sp_MyProc
@DBName varchar(256)

Declare UID_Cursor Cursor
Select Name from master..sysxlogins Where Len(Name) = 7 Order By Name

Open UID_Cursor
Declare @Name as varchar(256)
Declare @TempString as varchar(8000)

Fetch Next from UID_Cursor into @Name

While (@@Fetch_Status <> -1)

Set @TempString = 'sp_addrolemember ''db_datareader'', ''' + @Name + ''''

Fetch Next from UID_Cursor Into @Name

Close UID_Cursor
Deallocate UID_Cursor

Adding A Database Role To A Database Role

Feb 29, 2008


I have SQL server 2005 (Developer edition) installed and I want to add a database role to a database role. It is working on my SQL 2000 server,however, when I tried to do the same thing on SQL2005, It didn't allowed me.

When I go to the Add role and then adding members to the role, the browse screen does not allow me the choice of object type Roles. It only shows me "Users".

Can someone please help me with this and provide me some information of how / what should I set to get the Roles in object types list so I can add a role to a role.

Can't Make Database Role A Member Of Another Database Role In 2005.

Jan 9, 2006

In sql server 2000, I created some custom database roles called ProjectLeader and Developer.  I would make these roles a member in the fixed database roles so that I would only have to add the user to the ProjectLeader or Developer role once and they would presto-magico have the security I wanted them to have with no unecessary mouse clicking.  I'm not sure how to repeat this process in 2005?  Management Studio doesn't seem to allow you to add a role as a member in another role.  Is there a work around or solution for this?

Programmatically Adding A User To The System User Role

Dec 27, 2006

We have been working on an application that will be using a forms-authenticated report server (RS2005) as a reporting back-end. Using the reporting services web service I have been able to assign permissions to objects in reporting services no problem. The issue is that each user needs to be added to the System User role to be able to use the report builder properly. I can't seem to find a way to do this programmatically. Any idea?

Adding A User/role To All User Database

Jan 23, 2001

Hi everyone,

I try to add a db_role or a user to all my databases with one script. Although parsing doesn't report any problem I get a Syntax error during execution.
I first select the database names into a #temp table which has two columns, ID and dbname.
After that I use the following code:

DECLARE @Count smallint
declare @dbVarchar(20)

SET @Count = 1

WHILE (@Count <=(SELECT MAX(ID) FROM #temp))


Exec ("USE @db")

EXEC sp_adduser 'test'
EXEC sp_addrolemember 'my_role', 'testrole'

SET @db = (SELECT dbname FROM #temp WHERE ID = @Count)

It seems that the "Use @db" part has no value for the variable @db.
Does anybody knows how to solve this?

Application Role And SQL Express (2005)

Feb 4, 2007


Can I confirm whether pooling=false in the connection string is still required for SQL Server 2005 (Express Edition)?

Various google searches say pooling has to be turned off for SQL Server 2000, but I was just wondering whether it is still a limitation for SQL Server 2005

Sending SQL 2005 Dbmail When Using Application Role

Jan 16, 2007

I am attempting to use dbmail from an application that logs in to my database using an application role.  Since the application role does not exist outside the database, I created an spSendEmail in the database with "execute as login='mailagent'" in it:  I set the database to trustworthy, created a 'mailagent' account and added it to the msdb database with the databasemailuser role rights.

Email works just fine on the server when I use the execute as login='mailagent' to fire off the msdb..sp_send_dbmail.  But from the .NET application, I get the error: "Cannot execute as the server principal because the principal 'mailagent' does not exist, this type of principal cannot be impersonated, or you do not have permission."  When I run my spSendEmail stored procedure from the calling database, I get the same error.

SQL Server 2005 Application Role's Problem

Oct 8, 2007

Hi all.

I have developed a VB6 program which will activate an Application Role to UPDATE and INSERT some tables in SQL Server 2005.

My program will login with a username, say USER and then run with the rights of the Application Role which will SELECT, UPDATE and INSERT the following tables:
1) Table A
2) Table B
3) Table C

The USER login is a restricted user which has only SELECT permission to Table A, B and C.

I encounter a problem in which my program can only UPDATE table B and table C but Table A. I have double checked the settings of Table A, Table B and Table C. Theirs are all same. Fyi, the column which can't be updated is of type "datetime".

Once i grant USER login UPDATE permission to Table A, my program works perfectly in which it can UPDATE all the tables including Table A.

I have tried for almost 2 days but am still clueless. Any ideas?

Thank you so much.

I am having a problem with creating databases in MS SQL 2005 Server.

How To Drop A User Defined Database Role In 2005?

Mar 9, 2007

Using Studio, I created a user defined database role but I can not delete it because

"TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio

An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)


The database principal owns a schema in the database, and cannot be dropped. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 15138)

I am quite annoyed because the "owned schema" is db_owner, which can not be unselected. Quite an innovation. How do I drop this relationship?

Adding Second Node To SQL 2005 Cluster

Feb 20, 2008

I've installed MSCS on two Win2k3 x64 Enterprise systems. On the first I installed SQL 2005, and all went well. All resources are online and SQL works, migrated 25 databases into the new install. Installing SQL 2005 on the second node is problematic. If I select install cluster resources, I have to define new stuff for a new group. If I don't install cluster resources, then the install is all local (nothing on the unseen shared disk resource.)

It does not see the shared disk resource during install, the Quorum is good. I can move the Cluster Group between servers with no problems. None of the SQL resources is available on the second node. Error is basically "a cluster node is not available for this operation".

The Sql Server and Sql Server Agent do not even acknowledge the existence of the second node, and it is not available as a possible owner. i can't find any specific instructions on installing the second node. The other SQL resources say the second server is an available possible owner. None of them will take ownership and run the resource.

Any help available out there?

Adding A Jpeg Image To A SQL Server 2005 Table

Dec 9, 2007

I want to add a product photo in jpeg format to a products table. I'm storing the image of the product in separate jpeg files located in a folder on the same server that houses SQL Server. I don't want to store the photo directly in the table. I just want to reference the file location of the jpeg photo in a record.

Can someone provide me with code I need to add to the photo column for each record in the products table in order to reference the location of the jpeg photo associated with that record?

Subsequently, I want the photo to pop up in SQL Server Reporting Services product report.

Thank you.

AS 2005 Slowly Changing Dimension - Adding New Rows When No Change

Apr 15, 2007

Hi , I am using the Integration Services slowly changing dimension to move data from a SQL Server 2000 database table to a SQL Server 2005 table.

The other problem is the package is not tracking changes it is spending a lot of time doing lookups (it's slow), but ends up creating new records when there has not been a change.

I'm quite sure the business key is set up correctly (I'm using the PK from the source table).

The database I am transferring from has non Unicode data types (ie varchar and char) and the destination database has Unicode data types (ie nvarchar).

Also some of the fields in the dB are NULL - does this have an effect (ie one null doesn't equal another null)? Or shouldn't that matter?

Your Upgrade Is Blocked.. When Adding Components To SQL 2005 Standard Edition SP1

Sep 28, 2006

Name: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Tools


I am having a problem when trying to add the Client Components to an existing installation of SQL 2005 Standard Edition SP1 running on Windows 2003 Standard. The server was originally built with SQL 2005 Standard Edition and had SP1 installed at a later date. I am using the CD that SQL was originally installed with which is not a service packed copy of SQL. The reason given when clicking the details button is as follows:

Reason: Your upgrade is blocked. For more information about upgrade support, see the "Version and Edition Upgrades" and "Hardware and Software Requirements" topics in SQL Server 2005 Setup Help or SQL Server 2005 Books Online.

Build version check:

Your upgrade is blocked because the existing component is a later version than the version you are trying to upgrade to. To modify an existing SQL Server component, go to Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel, select the component you would like to modify, and then click Change/Remove.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Adding Table To Dataset For SQL Server Mobile Causes VS 2005 To Lock Up.

Apr 20, 2006

I am running VS 2005 Professional Edition

Windows XP profession with Service Pack 2

SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition.


I have a database running in an instance of SQL Server.

I set this up for merge publication and then set up a SQL Server Mobile Edition Subscription to that publication.  After a few oversights I got everything working.  The Mobile database replicated just fine.  I went back verified all data was there.  Can make queries to it.



I set up a new dataset to use tables from the SQL Server Mobile database.  If I drag one of the tables to the dataset, VS 2005 simply stops responding.  It is not using any processor. I click any place on the application and I get the Microsoft Visual Studio Delay Notification saying:

Microsoft Visual Studio is Busy.

Microsoft Visual Studio is waiting for an internal operation to complete.  If you regularly encounter this delay during normal usage, please report this problem to Microsoft.

Well...  It is more than just a delay.  The environment is not using any processor its just sitting here.  And I left it running for 2.5 hours...  so now this is becoming a big source of pain for me because I need to get that dataset working to finish my business logic.  The only option I have is to Kill the process.

Hopefully someone out there can help.

Additional Services running:

IIS (Whatever version comes with Windows XP Pro.  I think 5.1)

SQL Server Agent, SQL Server Integration Services, SQL Server Broswer and SQL Server FullTextSearch

UPDATE:  I am editing this post with an update.

I noticed that my other tables get added to the dataset just fine.  It is when I add one particular table that the entire visual studio simply stops and starts giving the delay notification.  I have no idea why this happens... nor do I see any noticeable difference between this table and the rest of them.  I went back and made sure that all columns types where directly supported by SQL Mobile Edition and they are.
