This should work with a sql dump because here you really dump data there are no informations out of which database systems they come from.

Restoring to a higher edition of the same version will work fine.

You may need to run a "fix logins" script if your database has an domain users, but you would have to do that anyway if moving to another server, so isn't unique to your scenario.

EXEC sp_change_users_login 'Report', the following are listed.

UserName            UserSID
bakerpreport            0x9DF2F5CD331FF14AB4B345B33A731C8B
erpreport3            0x0F42C6E03696B649BE9D8E20307EDCED

reportuser            0x9E9DCE427AD01543A5E81A90F996F4C3

Afterwards, I issue "EXEC sp_change_users_login 'Auto_Fix', 'bakerpreport' ". The following message is logged, Tks

"Msg 15600, Level 15, State 1, Procedure sp_change_users_login, Line 214
An invalid parameter or option was specified for procedure 'sys.sp_change_users_login'."

If you're using "Auto_Fix" then you need to supply a password. Auto_Fix will create a matching login if one doesn't already exist - which, depending on your security policy, you may or may not want it doing.

You might be better using "Update_One" option instead to ensure you are only mapping existing logins.

It returns with the message below. However, EXEC sp_change_users_login 'Report' show the user "bakerpreport". However, I can't see the name under MS SQL Server Management Studio -> Security -> Logins. What does it mean  ? Tks

Msg 15291, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_change_users_login, Line 137
Terminating this procedure. The Login name 'bakerpreport' is absent or invalid.

It means there isn't a login name that corresponds to the user name.

You need to decide if you need those users or not. If you do then you'll need to create the login and map the user to it - or you could go back to using "Auto_Fix" but you will need to provide a password to use to the login.

Personally I would script the logins manually, and then re-run sp_change_users_login with the "Update_One" option.

Alternatively, if you don't need the database users, you can just drop them.
