  • When granular permissions are disabled, a user who wants to run sp_dbcc_deletehistory on a specific database must be the owner of the database or must have sa_role.
  • A user does not have sa_role, but it is aliased as dbo in a database.
  • When the user executes sp_dbcc_deletehistory on the database, sp_is_valid_user called by sp_dbcc_deletehistory raises a 567 error.
