I am trying to move SQL Server from one server to another. what I plan to do is to backup the database and restore it on the other end.
My question is will this process also take care of all the user accounts associated with the database? If not, is there a convenient way to move user accounts since I have hundreds of accounts on the server. thanks a bunch!

Hi,

In answer to your question:
Yes the process will take care of all the USER accounts associated with each database.

However, it will not take care of SERVER LOGINS on the database SERVER itself.
The article quoted above will allow you to transfer the LOGINS.

However, you may need to run "sp_update_users_login" in order to too 'fix' the link between the LOGIN and the database USER.
Please refer to the SQL Server BOL for details on using that procedure, you will need to use the 'UPDATE_ONE' option.

Best Regards,

David

But I have just splitted the points to the other commenters. Sorry, I have no credit for your valuable input this time.
