Stop MSSQL Users from Seeing Everyone's Databases

We're running an MSSQL 2008 Web R2 server with hundreds of databases and hundreds of database users.

Problem(current outcome): When a user connects via MSSQL Management Studio, he/she can see the full list of databases but can only access the tables of the database his/her user has access to.

Desired Outcome: When a user connects via Management Studio using their designated MSSQL username/pass, they only see a list of databases the MSSQL username is assigned to. They should not see the whole list of databases.

Thanks guys, but what if the user isn't the database owner? Any way for them to see their databases too?

That's tricky.  I've had to try to do that.


You could try this:

REVOKE VIEW ANY DATABASE
    FROM <login>;

USE <db_name>

GRANT VIEW DATABASE STATE
    TO <username>;
