User does not have permission to perform this action.

Error Message:
Msg 15247, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_configure, Line 94
User does not have permission to perform this action.

Severity level:
16.

Description:
This error message appears when you try to run a statement for which your user does not have appropriate permission.

Consequences:
The T-SQL statement can be parsed, but causes the error at runtime.

Resolution:
Errors of the Severity Level 16 are generated by the user and can be fixed by the SQL Server user. The statement cannot be executed this way. You must have apprpriate permissions to execute this statement.

Versions:
All versions of SQL Server.

Example(s):
USE Master;
GO
DROP LOGIN MyUser;
GO
CREATE LOGIN MyUser
  WITH PASSWORD = ‘abc’;
USE Northwind;
DROP USER MyUser;
CREATE USER MyUser FOR LOGIN MyUser
  WITH DEFAULT_SCHEMA = dbo;
GO
SETUSER ‘MyUser’
GO
EXEC sp_configure ‘allow updates’, 1
RECONFIGURE
GO
SETUSER

Remarks:
In the above example we try to change as user MyUser via sp_configure the value for the ‘allow updates’ option to 1. Because this action can only be performed by members of the sysadmin group, the error is raised.
