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?

Server Role For Read-only

Jun 23, 2005


I have a couple enter prise SQL 2000 servers, each might contain around 800 customer databases. each of those 800 databases has its own sql standard login and password and corresponding permission on table select/update/delete and proc exec rights.

I want to create a sever level single login and password, which could read-only those 800 databases all tables only data. Those 800 databases are not always the same, some might be dropped out, new might be added.

If this is impossible, what might be the alternative?

-D :)

Public Server Role

Mar 30, 2006

In exploring permissions that users have, I find that they all have VIEW ANY DATABASE permission which they inherit from the public server role. You can see this by selecting the Permissions page on the Server Properties dialog and highlighting "public". The permission shows as having been granted by sa. This is listed as a server role. However, it does not show in the list of server roles and I can't find any documentation for it (RTM BOL). Interestingly, if I revoke this permission (which is the only permission this role has), the public server role disappears from view. But I can subsequently regrant the permission with Transact-SQL in master and the role comes back.

I would like more information about this role. It seems to be sort of "secret".

When I revoke the permission, users can't see any databases except master and tempdb (both of which have active guest users) even though they have been granted access to other databases.

What I was trying to accomplish by changing this permission was to allow a user to see only those databases which they are allowed to use. But that does not seem to be possible.

Thanks for the help.

SQL 2012 :: Role Based Server Security

Sep 20, 2015

There is a STIG Check that does not allow grant "Connect SQL" directly to any logins except SQL System and the SA account. My way of resolving this is to do the following:

Step One:
We create a Server Role called SQL_APPLICATIONS – for the application accounts
We create a Server Role called SQL_DBA – for the DBA accounts
and give them direct “Connect SQL’ server permissions. MAKE THE ROLE OWNER = sysadmin (group)

Note: I think that creating a Server Role is only available starting with SQL Server 2012, but not sure. I am using SQL 2012

Step two:
I add the members (Logins - SQL & Windows) – in this case any application accounts and DBA accounts to the new roles respectively

Step three:
I remove the “Connect SQL” Permission from each Login

The first problem i noticed is that the maintenance plans failed with "The owner domainusername of job db_backup does not have server access.I am currently using a test system and wondered If you think I will have trouble with the application connecting when I try and implement on the production systems.

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?

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.

Can't Read Tables If Not In Sysadmin Server Role

Jan 16, 2008

Listed below are some basic info about my application.

.net 2.0 web application

SQL 2000 database

Single sign-on. Windows Authentication with impersonate set to true in web.config:

<authentication mode="Windows"/>

<identity impersonate="true"/>

Connection String in web.config: <add name="conn" connectionString="Data Source=MyRemoteSeverName;Initial Catalog=MyDBName;Integrated Security=SSPI; " providerName="System.Data.SqlClient;"/>

The problem I'm having now is that any users that are not in the sysadmin server role can't read any table. Say if I have 2 users:

Domain1User1 ( in db_datareader and db_datawriter Database Role, no sever role assigned)
Domain1User2 ( in db_datareader and db_datawriter Database Role, sysadmin Server Role)

Here is what's expected to happen if everything goes well.

A list of customers ( first name, last name, age, etc) in a gridview should show up after login.

After both users logged in, Domain1User1 received an exception message of "Object reference not set to an instance of an object".

Domain1User2, however, was able to see the list.

I checked SQL Server Logs, and found 2 items:
Login succeeded for user 'Domain1User1' ... Connection TRUSTED
Login succeeded for user 'Domain1User2' ... Connection TRUSTED.
Based on the log file, it appears that both users had good connections to the database. Then why is it that User1, which is not in sysadmin Server Role, was not allowed to make a query?

Now if I assign sysadmin Server Role to Domain1User1 as well, the User1 will be able to see the list without seeing the exception.

Can someone shed some light for me please ?

'sysadmin Fixed Server Role' Error When Running A SQL Trace

Apr 20, 2006

Hi there. I work in a support department and on great occasion (such as this morning), I am RASd in to a client and try running a SQL trace, only to receive an error when setting it up, 'In order to run a trace against SQL Server you have to be amember of sysadmin fixed server role.'

Today, I even called their DBA and asked him if he could set our userid up with the proper permissions to all us to run traces (I'm debugging a RTE). He stated that he was unfamiliar with the error and didn't know where to assign us to resolve this problem.

Does anyone know how to resolve this?
Many thx.

Snaphot Fails Unless Sysadmin Fixed Server Role Permission Granted

Jan 16, 2007

Edition: SQL Server 2005 Standard
I am trying to take a snapshot of a database for use in a publication. The account under which the snapshot agent is running is set to have the db_owner role for the database and have write access to the snapshot share.

I can not get the snapshot to run unless the account under which the snapshot agent is running is granted the sysadmin fixed server role. Because of the security implications of this, I don't want to grant these permissions.

As far as I am concerned, the minimum requirements for the snapshot account have been met and I have tried every other alternate that I can think of. I've checked MSDN and the newsgroups but I still have not solved the problem.

The error that I get when I run the snapshot.exe from the command line is:
The remote server "TURING" does not exist, or has not been designated as a valid Publisher, or you may not have permission to see available Publishers.

This error message has now inexplicably changed to:
You do not have sufficient permissions to run the command...

Any ideas? Thanks.

SQL Security :: How To Create A Low Privilege User And Role For Server Session State

May 26, 2015

An old website I inherited uses sa to connect to SQL SessionState and had the details in the web.config. This is bad for security.The session state database is of -sstype "t" which is defined as:Temporary. Session state data is stored in the SQL Server tempdb database. Stored procedures for managing session state are installed in the SQL Server ASPState database. Data is not persisted if you restart SQL. This is the default.What kind of WIndows user, SQL Login, role and permissions do I need to create to make Session State secure?
