Hi,
I have a SQL2005 database with a database owner different from the dbo user.
sp_helpdb returns "sa" as owner
and on the database, sp_helpuser 'dbo' returns a different login.

Could you explain me how is it possible ?

Thanks a lot.
sp_helpdb 'mydatabase'
 
name db_size owner ....
------ ---------- ---------
mydatabase   200 MB    sa ...
 
mydatabase..sp_helpuser 'dbo
UserName GroupName LoginName  ....
------------ --------------- --------------
dbo           db_owner    foo

a restore from a backup from a other computer and database can make this happen
the userid doesn't match

you'll need to reset the owner of the db
