I need to allow some users to kill process that are
causing blocks. So I created a domain group and added it
to the process admin server role but these users still
don't have access to the Kill command in Enterprise
Manager or through TSQL statements. I couldn't find any
information on the Kbase and wanted to know if anyone else
is running in to the same problem. Dose any one know of
a solution to provide access to the kill command without
making user SQL Admins?
