Granting Read-Only and administrative access to Central Management Server (CMS)

In one of my previous post, I had discussed about the Central Management Server and how to Register it.
In this post, I will be telling how to give read-only access and a Administrative access to an existing CMS.

Grating the Read-Only and Administrative access to CMS is very simply and the activity includes adding the right database users to right groups in msdb database.

Granting Read-Only access:
USE [msdb]
GO
CREATE USER [DBUserName] FOR LOGIN [LoginName]
GO
EXEC sp_addrolemember N'ServerGroupReaderRole', N'DBUserName'
GO

Granting Administrator access:
This access is usually give to the DBA's
USE [msdb]
GO
CREATE USER [DBAUserName] FOR LOGIN [DBALoginName]
GO
EXEC sp_addrolemember N'ServerGroupAdministratorRole', N'DBAUserName'
GO
