Hello,

I have multiple SQL accounts I need to configure exactly the same.  If I do them one at a time, I have to go through multiple places to setup the security and user roles, schemas etc.  Is there any way to clone a user?

The only thing that would be different for each user is their default schema, password and username.

SQL 2008 x64

Thanks!

If it were me, I'd script the first one with CREATE LOGIN, GRANT, etc...
I suspect because that facility is available, there hasn't been created a way in the GUI to clone a user.

Alright...  Not a SQL guy so I will have to figure that one out...  Unless someone can help me write a script.

If I remember the interface for SQL 2008 Management Studio, there is script button in the upper left corner of the create logon window that might help get you started... it'll at least show you what commands it is using the create your user.
