Hi,

In one of our servers, there was a created a login name = <domain>\FarmA
This was assigned as username = 'dbo' to one of the databases (NW2007DB) for SharePoint. This has the db_owner role.

On the database NW2007DB, There was a database role "WSS_Content_Application_Pools" created

When I tried to tick on this database role, it says "Add member failed for role "WSS_Content_Application_Pools"
Additional Information : Cannot use the special principal "dbo"

Please help ...

Thanks

I wouldn't recommend the Approach of using 'sa'. Either create an AD user and use that as the owner of the database or create an SQL Server Login. 'sa' should not be used for situations like this.
