We have a SQL instance that includes a consolidation of many different databases. One of our new applications requires BULK INSERT functionality. Question #1: Am I correct in thinking that the bulkadmin fixed server role is required before a user can execute a bulk insert statement within a database? Question #2 Is bulkadmin STRICTLY for bulk inserts on databases where you already have insert permissions? In other words, if I a user has no permissions in a databases, does the bulkadmin fixed server role grant them any access to the database?
