Running SSMS With Different Windows Account

SQL Server

One common task that Database Administrators perform is configuring security for other users, even if that “other user” is themselves. In this article we learn how easy it is to log into SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) as a different network user, without changing how you are currently logged into the Windows client.

If one has to connect to SQL Server from the laptop where the DBA has logged in with regular account, he/she has to do “Right Click” with Shift key pressed and then use “Run as Different user” to use the admin account.
