Copy logins/permissionsHi All,
I am adding some new logins to our testing environment which will eventually be migrated to our live server…i have found plenty on copying a login, but this doesnt appear to copy the permissions this login has been granted…any tips on how to copy the permissions too?? Ben
The permissions are stored in the database. If you use sp_help_revlogin to migrate the logins, the SID of the logins will match on both servers. You will then have proper permissions on both servers. MeanOldDBA
