    Hi all,

    I have a SQL Server 2000 SP3 Active/Passive cluster. I have a requirement to tighten up security and would like to remove the BUILTINAdministrators group from SQL Server logins. I found this article:


    which lists the steps that need to be undertaken before cluster services are set up, but I already have cluster services set up & running.

    If I add the cluster service account to SQL Server logins will I be able to remove BUILTINAdministrators without any problems?

    thanks for any advice.

    If you carefully follow all of the steps described by Microsoft, you will be OK.
