    Question Unanswered: SECURITY - sysadmin role

    Hi all,

    Our SQL2000 server now allows all member of the Windows 2000 local administrators group log in with SysAdmin role.

    I only want couple of people with sysadmin role. What should I do
    to prevent that. I was told once that I should delete the
    BUILTIN\Administrator ID and manually add each window login ID
    to SQL server. Am I on the right track?

    Thank you for your help.

    Yes. This is the way to do it (deleting BUILTIN\Administrators).

    Just be sure you do not delete the BUILTIN\Administrators before you add yourself back in individually. If you lose your connection, you could get stuck.
