get a list of all users in SQL Server with account status (Active/Inactive or Enabled or disabled)

Hi friends,

Is there a way to get a list of users in SQL Server 2005 db with status of their account. A sql or something?

When I tried to test a disabled user via ODBC I get SQL Server Error: 18470 SQL State: 42000.

But would like have a sql to get user accont status.

Try this query

select name, type, case is_disabled when 0 then 'Active' else 'Disabled' end Status, 
create_date from sys.server_principals
where type = 'S'
