I'm sure this will be a simple question for someone.  I have a new Sql 2008 R2 server with a database running on it.  My domain administrator account has rights to the databse.  I need to be able to create an ODBC connection from a workstation to the database.  When I log in as administrator i can connect fine.  When I log in as my domain admin account it will not let me connect.  How do I add domain users to the list of accounts than can access this database?

Thanks!

Within SQL Server Management Studio, you need to make sure you have windows authentication enabled for the server.

You can then add users/groups to the logins for the server.

You can then add those logins to the database.

Windows only authentication :
USE [master]
GO
EXEC xp_instance_regwrite N'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE', N'Software\Microsoft\MSSQLServer\MSSQLServer', N'LoginMode', REG_DWORD, 1
GO

Open in new window


Windows and SQL authentication :
USE [master]
GO
EXEC xp_instance_regwrite N'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE', N'Software\Microsoft\MSSQLServer\MSSQLServer', N'LoginMode', REG_DWORD, 2
GO

Open in new window


Create domain group user with public access to a database :
USE [master]
GO
CREATE LOGIN [RICHARD-TOSH\HomeUsers] FROM WINDOWS WITH DEFAULT_DATABASE=[master], DEFAULT_LANGUAGE=[British]
GO
USE [ReportServer]
GO
CREATE USER [RICHARD-TOSH\HomeUsers] FOR LOGIN [RICHARD-TOSH\HomeUsers]
GO

Open in new window


These scripts are generated by the MSSMS (I'm using SQL 2008 R2 Dev Ed - excellent value for money for a sole developer).
