Does anyone know of a way that I can script out all of my logins on a nightly basis? Previously I used sp_help_revlogin via CMDExec

Do it in a job.

I think that you can also make an SSIS pkg to transfer logins, which would then be run, you guessed it, as a job.

I don't want to transfer them. I want to script them out to a .sql file so that I could restore them if the server catches fire. The transfer login task only lets you select a destination sql server.

Aren't the logins stored in the Master database? Wouldn't backing up the Master database give you what you need?

Okay. You can still set up a job to run sp_help_revlogin

I thought sp_help_revlogin was no longer available in SQL2k8.

There is a 2005 version which should work the same in 2008.

This URL takes you to that article:

I haven't tested this out on 2008 yet, but the syntax and objects I believe are the same.

This it what I use nightly from a job in SS 2000 to create a script file that will rebuild the logins.



osql -E -Sservername -Q"sp_help_revlogin" -o\\Sharename\DirName\rebuild_logins.sql -w512




Like a previous poster mentioned, there is a version of sp_help_revlogin for 2005 and osql (from what I've heard) is no longer used in 2008 either.

Oh well, if you haven't figured it out yet, this might point you in a direction.

Steve
