A user wants to test a software application that has a SQL Server 2008 R2 database. The user needs to

1. Log into the SQL Server and see ONLY one database
2. Have permissions to backup that database
3. Have permissions to delete that database
4. Have permissions to restore that database from the backup created in step 2

How can I do this -- looking for steps to perform on the SQL Server (2008 R2) and the O/S (Windows Server 2008 R2)

Install a new instance and provide sysadmin. Otherwise, you'll have to assign all sorts of server-level roles. Might as well do sysadmin on a dedicated instance.
