Hello,

I try to create a stored prod for checking db mirroring without be sysadmin :
create procedure check_mirror WITH EXECUTE AS ...  AS

set nocount on;
SELECT a.name +'|'+ CAST(isnull(b.mirroring_role,'') AS varchar(15)) +'|'+ CAST(isnull(b.mirroring_partner_instance,'') AS varchar(15))from sys.databases a INNER JOIN sys.database_mirroring b ON a.database_id=b.database_id where mirroring_role is null or mirroring_role=1 or mirroring_role=2

Thanks

you need to create procedure being sysadmin
create procedure check_mirror WITH EXECUTE AS SA 
AS
 ... 

Open in new window

and grant the permissions of the procedure to the user that needs to call this procedure.

if this does not work, what error do you get?

Hello,

The error is Msg 15151, Level 16, State 1, Procedure test, Line 3
Cannot execute as the user 'SA', because it does not exist or you do not have permission.
But I try to create the procedure with sysadmin account.

Thanks

Regards

sorry:
AS DBO

sa is the login, dbo is the user.

the only workaround is this:
* create a sql agent job, unscheduled
* instead of your current procedure, you could request the above job to be started sp_start_job

that's what I do to give "permissions" to users that they should not have directly
