when i run the following,
EXEC sp_helprotect NULL, 'DOMAIN\USERNAME'
i get
Msg 15330, Level 11, State 1, Procedure sp_helprotect, Line 291
There are no matching rows on which to report.

even though the windows login is registered as a login on the instance.

will this sp work for windows logins?

thanks

In the following link you can see an example identical to yours (ex. B): http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190310.aspx

Given that, I'd say that the username being used 'jimw' must not be a valid username for 'master'.  Is that your user name?  If not, try the same command using yours instead.

Did you verify that 'jimw' has actually performed queries sucessfully on master?  I know it is a pretty obvious question...just want to be thorough.

OK. JimW is a valid use in Tracker database. I do not see him as an user in MASTER, though. is that the problem? it is looking in the wrong place?
