Hi,

I've been using MS SQL Server 2000 for years - recently we upgraded a few servers to MS SQL Server 2005. I was hesitant to say the least. I still use administer and develop these by using MS SQL Server 2000 scripts / code and i use a 2000 server for testing and development.
So i thought id take the time to learn MS SQL Server 2005 - for some reason(unbeknown to me!!) they changed alot of things for the worse!!!!

What i was going to ask was - does anybody actually use the service / database / data encryption keys and certificates on live servers - we have has MS SQL Server 2005 for months now and i never even knew abou them until i read this book!!!!

Also does everyone else still use sp_addlogin and sp_grantlogin to add users instead of this create user for windows crap or is that just me??????????

Thanks
Greg Charles

To tell the truth, I usually add logins in SQL Server Management Studio though I have created scripts using CREATE LOGIN. I haven't had any particular problem with it and I figured I might as well use the new stuff since sp_addlogin will go away in a future version (maybe SQL 2008?).

Actually, I can remember being where you are right now. Cursing the changes that seem useless. Most of the stuff is backward compatible so you shouldn't be dead in the water, but as you slowly get better at Yukon, you'll start seeing the benefits.

I praise the devs for the new Create Login syntax. They're unifying the syntax for these things and it's wonderful. Now you dont have to try to remember the exact name of an SP to do something you want. It's all the same. Create Table, Create Procedure, Create Trigger, Create Login... see, it all fits.
