Re: Converting User SIDS from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005



Uri,

Thanks for your suggestion; however, apparently, the sysxlogins table no
longer exists in 2005. That's the point my script was failing as well.

Thanks,

I did it by using two stored procedures that MS have provided. I have not
played with it on SQL Server 2005 since I re-created logins on the new
server , however it worth to try.

WE have a query that we use whenever we transfer a database between
servers
that resyns the SIDS in the database to match those in the new
installation.

I am trying to convert a databse from 2000 to run on 2005 and the query no
longer works because 2005 does not store the user information in the same
way
as 2000. Can someone point me in the right direction to update this query
for 2005. Or, perhaps there is another approach I should be taking?

Here is the query:
/*********************************************************
* This script is used to synch the SIDs between
* the login and the database user. This should
* be executed after a database is copied to a new
* server and attached to keep the permissions as
* they were on the server where the database originated.
**********************************************************/

sp_configure 'allow updates', 1
GO
RECONFIGURE WITH OVERRIDE
GO

DECLARE @LoginSID VARBINARY(85)

-- Update the SID for the SEMS user.
SELECT @LoginSID = sid
FROM master..sysxlogins
WHERE name = 'SEMS'

UPDATE sysusers
SET sid = @LoginSID
WHERE name = 'SEMS'

-- Update the SID for the RptWriters user.
SELECT @LoginSID = sid
FROM master..sysxlogins
WHERE name = 'RptWriters'

UPDATE sysusers
SET sid = @LoginSID
WHERE name = 'RptWriters'

-- Update the SID for the TSEQALS user.
SELECT @LoginSID = sid
FROM master..sysxlogins
WHERE name = 'TSEQALS'

UPDATE sysusers
SET sid = @LoginSID
WHERE name = 'TSEQALS'

GO
sp_configure 'allow updates', 0
GO
RECONFIGURE
GO



Thanks,
John
