A quick story of why you have an individual username

8 09 2005

Over at the Sharktank…

Standard situation…. Sysadmin leaves, new guy comes in and changes passwords for security….

“I immediately get a call from the database admin, saying she is locked out of her computer,” fish says. “After confirming her username, changing her password, testing her account and confirming network connectivity, I can’t explain why the database admin can’t log in.

Hilarity ensues.

Now if only MS would track things by USER, not simply group.  If I (member of Administrators) do something to a file, it then belongs to Administrator.  It’s darn tough to own things as an Administrative user.   It would be nice though, since then I could find which OTHER Administrative user screwed up the settings in the config file last 😉
