Could have been this or could have been that but we assume the other.... didn't like the question, but thanks anyway.

Hope this helps...

Nice question, but I believe "not connected as sysadmin" is an equally correct answer though.

ps: no actual connections to a certain Grant who is always ranting? Cool

I believe that the group name is not in the correct format i.e. [DOMAIN\GROUP] whether previously specified as a domain group ... and that would very probably cause the query to fail.

From BOL:
The grantor (or the principal specified with the AS option) must have either the permission itself with GRANT OPTION or a higher permission that implies the permission being granted. Members of the sysadmin fixed server role can grant any permission.

Nothing in the question implicates Grant has the permission itself (it's a very logical assumption that he has, but an assumption nonetheless).

QOD contains -- "Mr. Grant is managing a SQL 2012 instance."

is this not sufficient to know that Grant has sys admin rights ?
