Hi All,

I would like to access to the database even though I am not allowed to be an administrator.
Is there any solution to this (Using Windows Authentication)?

Thanks a lot!

Log in to the DB with the credentials your administrator provides for you, if you're not allowed admin rights, then he'll have set up some lower permission level for you

What Gail said. If you're not allowed access to the database, It's best not to just take it upon yourself and try getting in. Do you have more information? Did your admins quit and you're taking over? Do you really need on that box? Did someone produce it from under a desk and ask you to manage it?

Something more would help ^.^

ask the admin for temporary credentials for accessing the database.

Actually I would like to access the information of minimum server memory and maximum server memory under server property only, but I don't want to be an administrator so as to take the least responsibilty. Therefore, I am wondering what is the role I need to perform when I login using Windows Authentication. Thanks again.

That requires the View Server State permission. It has nothing to do with how you log in, you just need the login you use to have that permission.
