The DEFAULT_SCHEMA clause cannot be used with a Windows group or with principals mapped to certificates or asymmetric keys.

Hi,
 I have windows Auth user to SQL Server 2008, When I try to set dbo schema as default schema for this user

I got the following message

"The DEFAULT_SCHEMA clause cannot be used with a Windows group or with principals mapped to certificates or asymmetric keys."

How do I fix this issue

Thanks

This is by design in SQL 2008.  When you have a Windows Group, you do not have an option for default Schema.  You have default schema options for a SQL Login and a Windows Login, but not a Group.

In later versions (SQL 2012, SQL 2014) you get Windows Group default schema, but not SQL 2008.
