Proxy account principals not saved


  • I am trying to create a Proxy account to use for Job Scheduling, but when ever I add Logins to the Principals  in the Proxy Properties and click OK, when I check again, they are not saved.  Is there a reason why this happens?  Is there an alternate way to add principals?  Thanks.

  • A little bit late to the party.

    But I had the same problem.

    If you scripted out the part where you are trying to add a principal and ran that in SSMS, you may get an error message.

    The error message that I got alluded to my principal having sysadmin role, and grants cannot be applied if login has sysadmin.
