expert,

I copied one database name FKDB from sql 2005 server to another server SQL 2008,
how can I copy FKDB database all users to SQL server 2008?
I use this command:
SELECT *  FROM sys.syslogins a join
   Roomtracker..sysusers b on a.sid = b.sid
In server sql 2005, how can I copy sid to sever 2008?

Thanks,
Lynn

I have seen your answer when I posted mine... You were quick...

you should transfer user account along with the logins... You cant use just the user accounts without logins...

Once you have transferred your Logins you can re-sync the users by using the system stored procedure sp_change_users_login, see here:
