Grant Existing Users Permission to Access the SQL Server Instance

SQL Server must be configured to use Windows Authentication to allow communication from Smart Interop Publisher. The user login for each workstation running Smart Interop Publisher must also exist for that user on the SQL Server instance. The Windows login must have the role of dbcreator.

The steps below outline the process for using SQL Server Management Studio to create the SQL Server instance user login. The steps can vary depending on how the SQL Server was initially configured.

  1. Start the MS SQL Server Management Studio.

  2. Connect to SQL Server using an account that has administrator privileges.

  3. Expand Security.

  4. Right-click Logins.

  5. Select New Login.

    The Login - New dialog box displays.

  6. In the General Page, enter in a Windows authentication login, such as a valid domain login.

    • You might have to search and check names, depending on the LAN Configuration at your site. On the Server Roles page, verify that the account has the server role dbcreator activated. You can add other roles to the account, if required.

    • On the User Mapping page, assign the user the dbowner role on any existing site or project databases.

  7. Click OK to create the login.

    The new login displays in the Logins treeview.

  8. Exit MS SQL Server management Studio.
