    ok fair enough,

    Are you trying to use the replicated db (on server b) as a mirror/backup or will the server B database be actively used by users?

    We want to have the server B actively used by users.

    Hi,

    I have just run the 'dts copy logins task' to copy the logins from server A to server B and the database that I copied was the master database. I am honestly not sure how to test it to make sure the logins on server B is working. Any ideas how?

    Thanks in advance for input!

    Try setting up a sql datasource on a client machine to Server b, specifying username and password to connect with, then try a query using that data source (alternatively I think theres a "test datasource" button), if it fails on uid/pwd it will report a login failure

    Hi,

    Thanks for your response! I guess I am not familiar with this test, is there anyway you can walk me through step-by-step how to test it?

    I really appreciate your help!

    Just open query analyzer, choose sql server b to connect to, put in that user id and password.

    Thank you both for your quick responses!

    I tried to log onto Query Analyzer but I got an error message 'sql server does not exist or access denied', I used the same userid and password to log onto Enterprize Manager to the same server (serverB), and it worked fine. Does it have anything to do with access right? I mean if I can log onto the Enterprize Manager, I should be able to log onto the Query Analyzer correct? I had no problem logging onto this server before though.

    Looking forward to your responses!

    If it works in em, should work in query analyzer. Is it windows account or standard sql account? Right click the server b in em and go to edit sql server registration to see what kind of authentication used.

    Hi 'rmiao',

    Thank you so much for your quick reply!

    I have checked the sql server registration, it's used 'window authentication', so I logged onto serverB again using window authentication connection, and it worked fine, but if I used 'sql server authentication', it does not work. How do I change/edit my userid so that I can also log onto the serverB using 'sql server authentication' ?

    No you can't since they are different type of sql logins.

    I see! so I guess it's the only way to test is to log onto the serverB with whatever the authentication is set in the sql server registration for that particular userid and password ? Am I correct?
