I have databases that were converted (by restore) from sql 2000 to sql 2005. I found a script to move the logins (all using nt/sql auth) to the 2005 box. All the users on the sql 2000 box belonged to public on the old box. If i loook at the users inside the db's on the 2005 box (no public) they are listed as a user but to no group. And through the 3rd party app it fails with the login. If they needed to belong to public in sql 2000, where do they go in 2005?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Your users are still a member of the public role. The UI simply doesn’t show the public role as you can not remove users from the public role.

Are users getting errors when logging in via Windows Authentication or SQL Authentication? What error are they getting? What is shown in the ERRORLOG?
After you restored the databases, and created the logins did you remap the Users with the SQL logins?
