Remarks

Before removing logins, use sp_helplogins to determine the user accounts the login maps to.

Permissions

Only members of the sysadmin and securityadmin fixed server roles can execute sp_helplogins.

sp_helplogins must check all databases on the server to determine the user accounts in those databases associated with the logins. Therefore, for each database on the server, one of these must apply:

  • The user executing sp_helplogins must have permissions to access the database.

  • The guest user account must exist in the database.

If a database cannot be accessed, sp_helplogins displays error message 15622 and as much information as it can for logins associated with user accounts in those databases.

Examples

This example reports information about the login John.

EXEC sp_helplogins 'John'
go

LoginName SID                        DefDBName DefLangName AUser ARemote
