When you do a restore of 10 databases from a location to a new location , will the user ids and logins go with you.  How do you transfer all of the ids and logins?

The users go with the database.  However, the logins don't.  The logins are stored in the master database.  You can use sp_change_users_login to relink the login with the user.

1. Ensure that the logins exist in the new database
2. Connect to the new database
3. Run
exec sp_revokedbaccess 'username'
4. Run
exec sp_grantdbaccess 'username'


repeat steps 3 and 4 for every user

IT will help.  You have the users in the database and all the permissions are set for this user.  The stored proc will relink the user with a login.

Gupshup, like I've suggested to you several times in the past--get a good book (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0130614300/qid=1081972369/sr=8-5/ref=pd_ka_5/002-1884116-6048004?v=glance&s=books&n=507846).

You're asking some very simple questions that you could save yourself a LOT of time and money on with a book....
