We've come across an issue by connecting to the Server. Because, the Sysadmin Login been dropped from the Server which was only the Login with administrative permissions and remaining ones having DB level permissions.

Now, we are unable to connect the Server with admin Login to perform Server level activities.

May I know any workaround for this issue?. Please suggest, it is an emegency.

Use DAC connection.
Be sure to login as a windows admin user and run the SQL Server Management Studio as administrator. As described on that page, connect to Database Engine Query (not to database engine).
