Windows Logins Basics
As most people would agree, Windows Authentication is the preferred authentication method in SQL Server as it provides consistency with your Windows or AD administration and it allows you to use groups for ease of administration if your users are organized into groups by security level and function.
To create a login in T-SQL use the following code:
CREATE LOGIN ‘AD\Ed’
To remove a login using T-SQL, use the following code:
DROP LOGIN ‘AD\Ed’
To deny a login using T-SQL, use the following code (NOTE: if the user or group does not exist in SQL Server, this command will add them first):
DENY CONNECT ‘AD\Ed’
This is a good foundation for a couple of other posts that I am working on for this week. Enjoy!
