Use sp_grantlogin to reverse the effects of a previous sp_denylogin that has been executed for a Windows NT user.

Use sp_addlogin to allow a SQL Server login to connect to SQL Server.

Although a login can connect to SQL Server after sp_grantlogin has been executed, access to user databases is denied until a user account for the login is created in each database that the login must access. Use sp_grantdbaccess to create a user account in each user database.

sp_grantlogin cannot be executed within a user-defined transaction.
Permissions

Only members of the sysadmin or securityadmin fixed server roles can execute sp_grantlogin
