I am trying to add a login to a sql server express database but am getting an error

I don't know a lot about SQL server Express but I need to create a login account so that I can connect with something other than windows authentication. I'm trying the following (password blanked out for security) but I'm getting errors. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Nothing is connected to the database other than SQL Server Management Studio.

USE [master]
GO
CREATE LOGIN [LEadmin] WITH PASSWORD=N'******' MUST_CHANGE, DEFAULT_DATABASE=[LE_tool_sql2SQL], DEFAULT_LANGUAGE=[us_english], CHECK_EXPIRATION=ON, CHECK_POLICY=ON
GO
EXEC master..sp_addsrvrolemember @loginame = N'LEadmin', @rolename = N'dbcreator'
GO
EXEC master..sp_addsrvrolemember @loginame = N'LEadmin', @rolename = N'securityadmin'
GO
EXEC master..sp_addsrvrolemember @loginame = N'LEadmin', @rolename = N'sysadmin'
GO
USE [LE_tool_sql2SQL]
GO
CREATE USER [LEadmin] FOR LOGIN [LEadmin]
GO

Getting the following errors

Msg 945, Level 14, State 2, Line 1
Database 'LE_tool_sql2SQL' cannot be opened due to inaccessible files or insufficient memory or disk space.  See the SQL Server errorlog for details.
Msg 15007, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_addsrvrolemember, Line 68
'LEadmin' is not a valid login or you do not have permission.

Hi,

There may be two reasons for this
1. That you don't have Sysadmin rights to the database on which you are trying to create login if user is not SA

Other there might be wrong status stored in the data base which you can clear with the following script ..

See the DB status, it should return 1

use master
select databaseproperty('LE_tool_sql2SQL','isShutdown')

Open in new window


2. Change the database to offline to clear the db status

use master
alter database  LE_tool_sql2SQL set offline

Open in new window


3. Now change the database to online, at this step log file and data files will be verified by sql server

use master
alter database LE_tool_sql2SQL set online

Open in new window

Not a solution, but a tip... Since you say you have management studio, just use the GUI to add the ID.  Do it at the server level under the security folder.  If you want the login to have privileges only in a specific DB, just mark those in the User Mapping section of the create user window.

I checked the status and it returned 0, not sure what to do about that? You said it should be 1

AH! That worked! I ran the offline script, then the online script then retried my create login script and it worked. Thank you so much!
