Unanswered: Removing Windows Authentication
We have our project installed in client place.
Operating system Windows 2003
Databases on SQL Server 2005
I have backup jobs running daily(owner <servername>\Administrator)
I have mirrored using certificates
SQL services logon as <servername>\Administrator
We want to disable the SQL Server windows authentication login.
I have a plan to remove below logins:
Please help me in finding what side effects I will face if i do this.
As far as I know some of these accounts cannot be disabled. If you succed in disabling <servername>\administrator the SQL services will stop running as it's the one used at the moment. Disabling some of the others can cause a lot of troubles.
