are these 2 talking about the same permissions?

sp_dbfixedrolepermission -- brings back 105 records
SELECT * FROM fn_my_permissions (NULL, 'DATABASE') -- brings back 61 records

No they are not the same.  The first one simply tells you what permissions each fixed db role has given to it.

The second is more contextual to you and what you have permissions on for that database.

so if a sysadmin runs it, should he/she get 105 rows back for the second query?

No, because it will just show what he/she has permissions on and does not correspond to the db fixed roles.  So the results will vary.

OK.

doesn't a sysadmin 'implicitly' have permission on 'all' that is possible in SQL Server?

Yes, that is correct.  There is nothing that a sysadmin cannot do on a SQL Server.

OK. but sorry, I am not getting it, in that reason, should not the sysadmin have all the 105 permissions mentioned in dbfixedrolepermission sp?
