Separation of Server administrators and Database administrators

Currently there is no separation between database administrators and service 
administrators. Any administrator of any running database can start and stop 
each other database and even worse, can stop the network server instance. In 
many installations this is just not acceptable. For example, if there are 
two departments running "their" databases on a shared network server 
instance, the network server's administrator doesn't like the idea that 
department A can shut down department B's databases. Also he is not happy 
that any database server administrator can (by incident or by intention) 
shut down the network server instance.

In several other DBMS, there is a clear separation between the administrator 
of the network server, and the administrators of each single database. 
Neither can the database administrators stop the network service nor any 
other database but the one they are defined in, nor can the network 
administrators look inside the data or schema of a particular database. This 
is a big benefit for stability, safety and security.

After eleven versions of SQL Anywhere I think now there is the time that SQL 
Anywhere learns the difference between database administrators and network 

Please add this separation to SQL Anywhere 12.

Database administration for runtime SQLAnywhere?
How are people administering a runtime database supposed to add users and grant privileges? The DDK installer only installs the runtime engine, not any utilities such as ISQL or Sybase Central. Can I deploy Sybase Central as well? Or am I supposed to write my own utilities? I took a look at writing my own utility, but apparently PB does not support embedded grant and revoke statements.

Sql Server Database Administration Web Application
Hi All, I will shortly (hopefully) begin devleoping an ASP.Net web application to let users manage a remote sql server 2005 database (kind of like the php myAdmin tool for MySQL databases). Were not talking a server managament tool for DBAs, more an end user tool for managing personal databases (it seems that web hosting companies provide tools for MySQL, but if you use SQL Server, you're stuck unless you have management tools on your PC - and what about mac users?).Given that premise, what features should i attempt to include? Creating and modifying tables structures and data is an...

Unable to connect to SQL Server database from the website administration tool.
Hi I have sql server 2005 local to which I am able to connect from my visual studio applications without any problem, However, when I click on the ASP.NET Configuration menu to use the website administration tool, and I click on the security tab to set users and roles,it give me an error message of "Unable to connect to SQL Server database.

Web Server and Database Server separated
Hi, Here is the scenario. Our website is hosted by hosting company. We plan to host the database at our office. The website connects to our database at our office. Is this possible? Is there a performance issue? Thanks. Dennis That certainly is possible. Things to take into mind, you have a open connection to your database server to anyone on the intranet, so you have to secure the connection via firewall and IP access control list. You might also think about creating a Web Service at the location where your database is for the application on hosts machine to access your data. Connectio...

Having problems connecting to the DB via the Website Administration Tool. I can connect successfully using other pages and have retrieved data from the DB. Testing my connection works successfully. I have run the aspnet_regsql.exe and set up the aspnet_x tables in my database. But I want to set up security and cannot connect to the DB via the Website Admin Tool.  Any ideas? Is this a security / permissions issue caused by having the DB and VWD runni...

Database Administrator
Hi, I am using PowerBuilder 7.0 Build 6012. The Database Administrator option in 6.5 and previous versions has now been named as ISQL session in the one of the several tabs of one of the several window panes that open up when you hit Database Toolbar. Has anyone actually found a way to open an existing SQL file directly in this painter other than copying it from the file editor? Thanks in advance. Biju Nair. I found it!!

Web Site Administration Tool very slow
I have created a website that uses forms authentication (against aspnetdb under SQL server 2000).   I managed to create a user through the "CreateUserWizard" control on my page, can authenticate my user through the  test website but are strugling endlessly to use the website admininistration tool to manage folder\file access for this user.... I open the Website Administration Tool and click on the security takes literally 30 seconds before it opens the security page - something I don't really understand because everything is local on my machine.

I am following the  's video tutorials in creating a secure login site. The problem is, when I reached the point where I use the Asp.Net Web Site Administration Tool, it isn't connecting to the sql server database. I'm creating a web site using Visual Studio and Visual Web Developer 2005.  Now, before this happened, I had trouble with a previous video creating a database; I went into options and discovered that it was set to my computer name/sqlexpress; I noticed that the instructions for that text field said that leaving that blank would then use the default.

Yes, I have been so distracted trying to get Windows authentication working on my project, experimenting with various NTFS permissions etc, that I must have denied administrator access to an important directory, whilst logged in as administrator :( What can I do??

To take ownership right click the folder and select properties, select the security tab. There should be a button that sa...
