I have a MS SQL 2000 Standard install running on Windows 2003. I need to grant a user the abilitty to administrator SQL server, create new data bases etc... I've gone into Enterprise Manger and added there user account and set their role as Systems Administrator and database pemissions as db_ddadmin for the master database. Will these settings give the user the proper amount of permissions to administator SQL?

    if you give a user system administrator (sysadmin) role for the server in mssql server then you dont need to give user any other previllege. That is the admin and can do anything.
