Unanswered: Review host system privilages assigned to DBA account
Is there a way to check if the SQL Server windows login with sysadmin previlages have other host system (windows 2003) previages on the system...? Is there a way to use TSQL to find this?
what are the other options avaliable to verify this??
I'm not aware of anything native (I don't think there is), but if you have powershell installed and have xp_cmdshell enabled, you could use tsql to execute a powershell script to query local group membership.
