context "NT AUTHORITY\"?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 10, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
What does context "NT AUTHORITY\" (in system accounts "NETWORK SERVICE", "LOCAL SERVICE", "LOCAL SYSTEM") tell to developer (user of corresponding accounts)? Other accounts have context of "local" %COMPUTERNAME% of domain %DOMAINNAME% What are differences or distinguishing features that "NT AUTHORITY\" was created above/aside additionally to all other contexts? Why and how does it relate to other contexts? There are system accounts that have more mundane local or domain contexts. Why this context was added/separated from others?

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

Cutting Edge: Context-Sensitive PictureBox Controls


Great ideas are timeless. A long time ago in Microsoft Systems Journal Paul DiLascia demonstrated a neat trick to display context-sensitive tooltips floating over pictures. As the user moved the mouse over the picture, the tooltip control updated its text to reflect the name of the pointed figure.

Cutting Edge: Adding a Context Menu to ASP.NET Controls


Although the context menu is a common element of most desktop applications, it is still fairly uncommon in Web application names because it doesn't map well to a server-based technology like ASP. NET.

Hey guys,

I've got a literal control to display the username of the user logged into our companies intranet system, originally I had a LoginName control but couldn't get strip to remove the domain from the username (as the format is domainname\username) so I'm trying it this way.

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
        string[] Parts = User.Identity.Name.Split("\\");

        if (Parts.Length == 2)
            loginName.Text = Parts[1];
            loginName.Text = User.Identity.Name;


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
        string[] Parts = User.Identity.Name.Split("\\");

SQLCMD: Changed Database Context messages

Is there a way to suppress the "Changed Database Context to " messages in SQLCMD?  For example, I get the following: 1> use master2> goChanged database context to 'master'.1>I am trying to migrate some legacy batch files that called isql and used the output files.  These extra "Changed Database Context to " messages are causing our scripts to break, and I was hoping to avoid having to write something extra to handle these messages.Thanks.

Context Connection problem in SQLCLR

I am using context connection in the sqlclr (and there are reasons to do so). While a datareader is under execution that uses the context connection, I need another database read passing one of values being read from the datareader. Since I cann't use the context connection for this second read (as context connection is already in use), how can I create a second connection to be used with this second read. I cannot create the hardcoded connections string for the second connection as the database is dynamically selected. The database is same as used by the context connection. I can use the server=localhost though, but cannot hardcode the database name as the database can be different in different sqlclr proc call. However the database is same as used by the context connection. (If I somehow get the database name from the context connection then I can use it to create another connection, but I am expecting an even better solution)   Any solution to this problem? Will be very thankful.
