Yesterday, a developer sent me an e-mail indicating he was having problems creating a table in SQL Server Management Studio. He was using the GUI rather than the CREATE TABLE T-SQL statement. When he tried to save his changes, he encountered the following error:
Property DefaultSchema is not available for Database '[DatabasName]'. This property may not exist for this object, or may not be retrievable due to insufficient access rights. (SQLEditors)
We add developers to the db_owner role in each of the development databases, so I didn't think that permissions was the issue. I did some googling and found this.
You'll encounter this error when you try to use the GUI to create a table, are not sysadmin, and your access to the SQL Server 2005 database is from a Windows group. See Raul Garcia's post in the thread for a workaround.
The thread indicates that Microsoft is aware of the problem.
We already have service pack 1 installed, so it must not be included in it. Hopefully, service pack 2 has the fix for this bug.
