Hi Guys,

In my SQL Server, i have Wilson as user. I need to know what is his role.

Could we have SQL syntax to check what role is wilson. Specifically I wanna know whether Wilson has role Sysadmin or not.

Thanks.

Can you check this?
SELECT 
 SSP.name AS [Login Name],
 SSP.type_desc AS [Login Type],
 UPPER(SSPS.name) AS [Server Role]
FROM sys.server_principals SSP 
INNER JOIN sys.server_role_members SSRM
ON SSP.principal_id=SSRM.member_principal_id 
INNER JOIN sys.server_principals SSPS 
ON SSRM.role_principal_id = SSPS.principal_id

Hi Sharath,

Thanks for the fast response.

Your query return 1 row :
sa      SQL_LOGIN      SYSADMIN

Does it mean that 'Wilson' is not SYSADMIN?

Do you have Wilson under Security -> Logins folder? Can you run this query also and see the result?
select rolename = rolep.name, membername= memp.name from sys.server_role_members rm
join sys.server_principals rolep on rm.role_principal_id = rolep.principal_id
join sys.server_principals memp on rm.member_principal_id = memp.principal_id
