I am trying to implement some better security practices for our database systems. Right now, dbo is owned by SA. I plan to create new accounts on each server, with differing passwords, and assign SysAdmin to that local user. For many databases, dbo user is linked to the SA login. I can change these using ALTER AUTHORIZATION... no biggie.
My question is, I see MASTER and some other DB's have this mapping of DBO to SA. I don't believe that the DB Owner can be set to anything but SA on these db's.
Will disabling the SA account have impact on the opperation of the system databases when DBO is mapped to SA?
