You administer a Microsoft SQL Server 2012 database. The database has a table named Customers owned by User A and another table named Orders owned by User B. You also have a stored procedure named GetCustomerOrderInfo owned by User B. GetCustomerOrderInfo selects data from both tables. You create a new user named User C. You need to ensure that User C can call the GetCustomerOrderInfo stored procedure. You also need to assign only the minimum required permissions to User C. Which permission or permissions should you assign to User C?

Note: There can be multiple correct answers to this question.

    • The Select permission on Customers

    • The Execute permission on GetCustomerOrderInfo

    • The Take Ownership permission on Customers

    • The Control permission on GetCustomerOrderInfo

    • The Take Ownership permission on Orders

    • The Select permission on Orders


You administer several Microsoft SQL Server 2012 database servers. Merge replication has been configured for an application that is distributed across offices throughout a wide area network (WAN). Many of the tables involved in replication use the XML and varchar (max) data types. Occasionally, merge replication fails due to timeout errors. You need to reduce the occurrence of these timeout errors. What should you do?

    • Set the Merge agent on the problem subscribers to use the slow link agent profile.

    • Create a snapshot publication, and reconfigure the problem subscribers to use the snapshot publication.

    • Change the Merge agent on the problem subscribers to run continuously.

    • Set the Remote Connection Timeout on the Publisher to 0.


You administer a Microsoft SQL Server 2012 database. You provide temporary security admin access to User1 to the database server. You need to know if User1 adds logins to security admin. Which server-level audit action group should you use?
