Hi,

I have installed the SQL Server 2005 SP2 and am running the SQL Server 2005 User Provisioning Tool. When I attempt to add the privileges it presents an error:

'A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to the SQL server.... Error 26 - Error locating Server/Instance Specified.

Any ideas?

Seems it does not let me apply the permissions to the following database:

MICROSOFT##SSEE

But it does apply to the following:

SBSMONITORING

I think is normal behaviour but please advise if this is not the case.

MICROSOFT##SSEE is referred to as the windows internal database.
It CAN NOT be accessed over the network.

If local, you don't have the permission. But ...
Back to your Query. This is a normal behaviour, you don't need/want to change in the windows internal database.

So you should be ok.
