Unable To Map Users To The Login

Apr 9, 2008

I am new to this, so, I will be greatful to anyone who can clarify the following:

qn 1:
In login properties under Logins of Security, what does creating mapping to the different databases mean ?

For a given login, I notice that I can login / execute DDL statements alike for the databases which are checked and also for the ones that are not checked.

Then, what does
Security -> Logins - > Login Properties -> User mapping -> Users mapped to this login -> checking the database - accomplish?

qn 2:
For a perticular login, say 'Bob' which has server admin rights, I wish to include two more databases. For this I 'checked' the databases, which I wish to include, in the

Security -> Logins - > Login Properties -> User mapping -> Users mapped to this login

When I clicked 'OK', I get the following error and the two databases are left unchecked.

User, group, or role 'SQL1AGENT' already exists in the current database. (.Net SqlClient Data Provider)

How can I include the databases ?

SQL Security :: Users Are Able To Login To Server Without Any Login Names Or Being Part Of A Group

Jun 5, 2015

I have a server that has 20 databases . I have tested with few users with different level of access and all of them were able to connect to the server and also see, select, update , delete from a particular database which is kind of weird because they do not have a user login associated or mapped to that database. I checked and no user is part of any group in AD that would give them permission to connect . I need a query that would find the permission path of a user. I already queried with xp_logininfo but I am not getting any thing.

Unable To Complete Login Process Due To Delay In Login Response

Jan 16, 2006

I receive this error message occasionally in my ETL - usually when trying to pull data from our source system:

An OLE DB error has occurred. Error code: 0x80004005.  An OLE DB record is available.  Source: "Microsoft SQL Native Client"  Hresult: 0x80004005  Description: "Login timeout expired".  An OLE DB record is available.  Source: "Microsoft SQL Native Client"  Hresult: 0x80004005  Description: "Unable to complete login process due to delay in login response".  An OLE DB record is available.  Source: "Microsoft SQL Native Client"  Hresult: 0x80004005  Description: "TCP Provider: Timeout error [258]. ". 
There is a setting in the connections manager, under the ALL tab, Initialization, Connect Timeout.  It is set to zero, which would be the default.  It appears (by looking at the timestamps in my error log) that the default is 15 seconds.  If I change this to a higher value (60 seconds or so) should this fix the error?

Users And Login Restoration

Jul 24, 2002

SQL Server 7 or 2000.

I restore a database on a different server from a device file. This database has a user defined for it. In this case, 'privuser' is the name. No login has been defined.

I can add the privuser login but cannot grant db access because privuser already exists in the db. I cannot drop 'privuser' because the user owns all the user objects in the db.

How can I make the privuser login I create access the db using the privuser username in the db? Would having the login created before restoring the db as a new db work?

Restoring DB (users/login Problems)

Apr 11, 2007


I have a few db's that I am backing up from an old sql2000 system and moving them to the new sql2005 server. The first db's restored without any problems but now I am getting some problems with users and logins.

I am restoring in the following order

1.) Creating empty db "123"
2.) Restoring database from file to database "123"
3.) Creating Login to this database (error happens when linking it to the database, "user exists")

When connecting thru QA I get "Cannot open user default database login failed"

I only have 1 login per database and I don't mind manually deleting and recreating them all but it doesnt seem to be working :S

Any suggestions much appreciated!! :)

Parameter Selected By Users Login

Oct 22, 2007

I'm trying to set up my reports with parameters, to select the paramater by the users login. For example, if someone from the Northwest Region accesses Report mangers and then a report. Instead of them clicking the drop down, for the report parameter. The report automatically generates from the login that gave them access to report manager. So it diplays the information for the Northwest Region.

I know how to do this for Data Driven subscriptions.Such as creating a table , with Region, login, email, and all the information relevant. But how do i do this for users accessing the site theirselves? Is this possible?

Force RS To Use Database Login For Users

Apr 3, 2008

I am in a situation where I would like to use a SQL login instead of adding individuals windows login to the server. Is there a way to force a login instead of having the report server not give rights at all??

I hope that makes sense...

SQL Security :: Adding 3 Users To A Login?

Oct 28, 2015

I have to give three users read access to a database.  My manager told me to map them to a User called "zxDatabase.Read.ug".  I scripted  the User and got this...


I don't see a Login at the server level named zxDatabase.Read.ug, so this is confusing.  Where is this login in SSMS?

How do I map my three users to user zxDatabase.Read.ug. Or am I not understanding correctly?  Do I just add there windows login to the database as Users and configure them the same as zxDatabase.Read.ug

Users Are Unable To Connect To SQL Server 2005 Unless They Are In The Sysadmin Group

Nov 21, 2006

We are running SQL Server 2005 in a Windows 2003 domain and I have a situation where some of my users are unable to connect to the SQL Server unless they are a member of the sysadmin group. Any attempts by these users to login result in a login failed,

Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 11

Which indicates that it is a valid user who does not have access to this SQL Server.

I have been able to narrow the failures down to the following situation:

Create a user, TestUser1, as a member of 1 domain local group TestGroup1

Give TestGroup1 access to SQL (standard public access to master)

All good. Login succeeds.

Add TestUser1 to another domain local group TestGroup2

Attempt to login to SQL Server -> login failed.

Add the user explicitly -> login failed

Add one of the groups to sysadmin -> login succeeds

It seems that as long as the user is a member of more than one AD group, and none of those groups is a member of the sysadmin server role then the user is unable to login. Obviously having all of the users as sysadmin isn't a workable solution, has anyone seen this issue before?

I have been able to replicate a similar situation in our test domain, but in that case the issue is resolved by adding the users explicitly to SQL Server (still not an ideal solution).

Interestingly, if I run the same test in our test domain but use global groups, it works. But unfortunately the network admin tells me the groups must stay as local.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Unable To View Jobs Even After Adding Users To MSDB Roles SQLAgent...

May 20, 2008

Developers need to view and modify jobs on some servers without being sysadmin. We've added the developers to the following MSDB roles:


Technically they should be able to view and modify jobs through Management Studio when being added only to SQLAgentOperatorRole. However they receive the following error when clicking on the Jobs folder regardless of the msdb role.

Execute Permission Denied on Object 'xp_sqlagent_enum_jobs', database 'mssqlsystemresource', schema 'sys'. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 229)

Our original two SQL 2005 servers do not produce this message, but all other instances do. All servers, but one, are SP2 so the service pack is not an issue. Any thoughts?

Thanks, Dave

SQL 2012 :: Secure Login To Database For Web Users?

Feb 21, 2014

We build up a new website in .net mvc 4.0 on a w2012 server with MSSQL 2012 database.We use windows autentification and normal anonymous access through NT AUTHORITYIUSR who is also a login in the database.But we make extra login possibility for users who are registered and they can insert and modify data in some tables in the database. And I'am afraid of giving NT AUTHORITYIUSR insert and update for some column in tables.I think of set up a new login for the database. Run a new connection string on login and set up special permission for that extra user on the database, and let the user become a member of the ordinary user on the database.

SQL 2012 :: Migrating Database To New Server - Map Login To Users

Mar 10, 2014

I am migrating a database TESTDB from SQL 2008R2 to a new server running SQL Server 2012.

Management has decided the current sql users should have "better" user names. So the login and username "BadUsername" on the old server should be called "GoodUserName". Goodusername should have the same permissions as Badusername.

I have now restored a backup from the old server to the new server.

I used the following script for creating the login:


Then I run the following script:

ALTER USER Badusername WITH LOGIN = GoodUserName, NAME = GoodUserName

But the results are not what I wanted. I now have two database users: Badusername and GoodUserName. I would have preferred if BadUserName was "replaced" by GoodUserName, but it won't be a problem if I have to delete badusername manually. Worser is that GoodUserName have NOT "inherited" any permissions from Badusername.

Is there an easy way to transfer permissions or do I need to loop through the permissions of badusername and apply those to badusername?

Unable To Login, Only One User SA

Aug 22, 2006

Hi there,

I am novice to SQL, I have a software which uses SQL as backend. The software is made in such a way that during its installation it runs a stored procedure which deletes all users except SA. Now when I try to login to SQL either via Enterprise Manager or via query analyser it asks for password. When I put the password it gives error
"Unable to connect to server. msg:18456, level 16, state 1[microsoft][odbc sql server driver][sql server] login failed for user SA. Someone told me that it is unable to connect to server. But the main thing is that I dont have any client I have only server. What could be the possible reason.
1)Is there anyway of creating a user in SQL in such a situation when there is only one user SA and it is unable to log in SQL server.
2)Or is there anyway of removing SA Password.
3)Or is there anyway (in SQL SERVER) of stopping a particular procedure from getting executed while software installation.

Thanking you and waiting for some kind replies.

Db_owners Unable To See Login List

Jul 18, 2007

Hi. We are using SQL Server 2005 64-bit on Windows Server 2003 R2 x64Enterprise Edition. I have a really weird problem where I have peopleout there who are placed in the db_owner, db_accessadmin, anddb_securityadmin roles in their database, and yet they are unable toadd new users to their databases, despite the fact that logins existfor these users on the server. The reason is that when attempting toadd a new user in Management Studio, upon using the "Browse" option tolook at the logins, the complete list is not presented to them. Infact, they only see a couple of logins or so (the server has hundredsof logins). Also, if they try to type in the login name directly,they get a "permission denied" error message. Since they cannot addusers to their databases, they have to call me and have me do it forthem.I created a test, non-privileged, SQL-authenticated login to testthings for my own sake, and when logged in under the test account, Isaw the same behavior. I had db_owner role for a single testdatabase, and when I went to add users, the only server logins thatwere displayed were my own (the test login in this case) and that ofsa. Further, when I queried the master.sys.syslogins view, I saw thesame thing, it only came back with the rows for myself and sa.It appears that this is clearly a security problem, but I'm not sureat what level to look. We never had this problem with SQL Server 2000or earlier. Does anyone have any idea what I can do to allow mydb_owners to see all the server logins, and therefore be able to addusers to their databases as they see fit? I really do NOT want toassign them to server-level security roles, for obvious reasons.Thanks,SkyGringo

Unable To Drop Login Due To Existing Event Notification

Aug 20, 2007


I am unable to drop the above login. The error is Error:15141 The server principal owns an event notification and cannot be dropped.

I have looked in the table sys.server_event_notifications and there are rows returned that have a server_principal_id of the user I am trying to drop. No events have been created on this server, so I am assuming these notifications are either created by default or are somehow related to Database Mail?

All the event notifications belong to service name "SQL/Notifications/ProcessWMIEventProviderNotification/v1.0" and begin with SQLWEP (i.e. SQLWEP_RECHECK_SUBSCRIPTIONS, SQLWEP_B415ADB8_A604_4057_976F_600002FA5AF6). How can I find out what these are for and how they were created?

What purpose do these event notifications have? Is there some syntax to change the owner of these event notifications so I can successfully drop the login? If the only way is to directly update the system view, is this safe and what repercussions could this have?
