Run SQL Agent Jobs without SysAdmin role RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Im using sql server 2014 with alwayson, we are using a third party application. This application reset the SA password and encrypt it. Fortunately I decrypt it and get the password. This application remove all users sysadmin role. Now my problem is I'm unable to run any backup jobs in Agent, Is there any option available to run Agent jobs without sysadmin role.

  • Hi,

    First of all: that application which changes the sa password w/o your approval that should not be in any environment and/or the vendor *must* change the application. 

    You can use Ola's script properly w/o sysadmin role, please take a look on this article.

    I hope it helps.
