Database doesn't show username even when user mapping to DB is set RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I have wierd problem,  On this SQL server I am sysadmin. I created a DB and assigned the my username through the user mapping of the SQL server -- security folder for the newly created database.

    But, my user name does not show up in the databases --> users folder??????

    Can anyone point me in the direction to fix this, I have done several refreshes.

  • When a login is sysadmin in SQL server it doesnt need access to databases through user mapping but there is no harm in doing that. I am sure this should work and you should be able to see them in the users immediately.

    Did you query sys.database_principals catalog on that database ? Are you in the right database when checking in GUI ?

    Thanks, Leks
