We have a vendor that wants us to run a SQL script on our server. One example within the script:
GRANT EXECUTE ON[sys].[sp_OASetProperty] TO[public]
It includes sp_oasetproperty, sp_OAMethod, sp_OAGetErrorInfo, sp_OADestroy, sp_OAStop, sp_OACreate, sp_OAGetProperty, sp_configure'show advanced options',1 ; and sp_configure'Ole Automation Procedures',1.
My own Googling shows these stored procedures work with the COM object. It was requested I run this script against the master database using a SA account (it's mapped to a few user databases). While that's fine, we have over 30 user databases on this server.
Do I have a concern executing this script? We need to ensure there's no impact to the other databases. Any comments / URLs are appreciated - thanks.
