Identfying current users of database

Identfying current users of database

Identfying current users of database

Even though I know that others are connected to the database, a script like


select DB_NAME(dbid) as 'Database', loginame as LoginName
FROM sys.sysprocesses WHERE DB_NAME(dbid) ='myDatabase' 
only shows myself, and not the other users. Any suggestions?

RE: Identfying current users of database

Thank you; unfortunately sp_who and sp_who2 yield the same result as my script: only me

RE: Identfying current users of database

Thank you. I was beginning to fear this. I shall see if the IT-department will GRANT VIEW SERVER STATE to me.
