I created a sql server 2008 r2 database for a specific user and assigned them as dbowner. Is there  a way to tell if this user has been logging in and using this database?

thanks!

In MSSQL server you can run the following command...

exec sp_who2

Open in new window


This will give you a lot of information including who is logged in, application name, current command, so on and so forth.

That shows only events since 3/23.

How do I see event as far back as 3/20? If it doesn't show that date is it just not there? That's when I created the database. And I logged in with the account that date, but I don't see any record of it.

thanks!

Check out the following article:

Have you checked the Windows Event Viewer?  The security collection may have a listing of the authentication to the sql server.
