Note to all SO beginner:

Please read (and embrace!) Jon Skeet's helpful hints on how to write a good question (or at least his short version here ) - one that has a chance that someone can answer it.


A Pascal/Delphi programmer and database freak at heart, I work as a C# developer on line-of-business applications (mostly ASP.NET).

I'm interested mostly in distributed systems (WCF), database (design and SQL), and Active Directory.


I'm an MCPD .NET 4 Web Developer, MCPD .NET 4 Windows Developer, MCPD Enterprise Application Developer (.NET 3.5), and MCTS for WCF, ADO.NET, Winforms and ASP.NET.

comment SQL Server 2008 user and group permissions behavior weirdness
You need to take care: a login is on the server-level - a SQL Server instance has logins. Each database then has users that are linked to those logins. You cannot have a database has a login..... the server has a login, and the database has a user connected to that login.....
