I've registered a server through EM using the SA login, now when I go to view Server Roles none of the fixed server roles are visible as in sysadmin etc. Also I am unable to add a new login or go to properties of an existing login, as if the SA login has lost its sysadmin rights ??

Any advice greatly appreciated

Double check registration properties. Did you see sa in logins?

If you see SA instead of sa, may have problem. Try logon using id with sysadmin rights to double check.

sa is there, sorry should have pointed out the no capitals, however New Login option is greyed out and also if I register the box under my domain account which is anm admin account then again I have no admin rights, however if I log on via Query Analyser as sa or my domain account then I do have admin rights and can add users, so it's just through EM that the permissions appear wrong and all server roles are NOT visible...

Is it on client machine or on the server? Tried em from other sql client machines? If works on other machines, just reinstall sql client then apply sp.

No, it's not master db issue. Try reinstall sql client first and apply same sp as server has.

Did re-install client and still experienced the same issue. Have looked into this more and have now discovered that many of the master system tables are empty ?? spt_values is empty and believe this is used to link with sysxlogins table to return role permissions, hence why I feel a master restore may be necessary. Any advice appreciated

I have re-populated the spt_values table by runbning the u_tables.sql script from SP4 and now my fixed server roles are visible again. My question is though is there a way I can re-populate the other system tables for example spt_provider_types and the others or is the only way via rebuilding the Master database then restoring a master backup from before my problems started so as logins are added.
