Microsoft SQL Server: Setup and Administration FAQ

Synchronizing Servers

How do you keep SQL logins and pw's synched between servers? by Flloyd
Posted: 25 Mar 03

I've seen this question posed a number of times and while there may be several solutions, here is a link to a good Microsoft article that discusses the issues and provides a working sp that can run with SQL7 or SQL2K:


I have a SQL job scheduled to run the stored procedure on the source SQL server and direct the output (script) to a shared network folder.  On the target SQL server(s) you can schedule a job to execute the resulting script and the non-existant logins will be created with the same passwords as on the source server.
