Someone, while locking down the SQL Server, removed the permissions by which the DBAs came in and administered the server. As a result, we cannot get back into SQL Server. How can we restore our access to SQL Server? Check out this tip to find out.
I am new to SQL Server 2005/2008 having administered SQL Server 2000 and below. I have heard there are a lot of new permissions at the database level. What are they and what do they give rights to perform?
