Enabling and disabling logins in SQL Server 2005

In SQL Server, much like other services with users, login accounts can be enabled or disabled. An enabled login can be authenticated and allowed access to database resources. A disabled login is not allowed to establish a connection to the SQL Server instance.
For example, let's create a login called  sumank.
CREATE LOGIN sumank WITH 
        PASSWORD = 'ipl5@2012'     
 ,DEFAULT_DATABASE = AdventureWorks
USE AdventureWorks;

CREATE USER sumank
In the first statement, the sumank login was created with a fairly complex password and a default database of AdventureWorks. Afterward, we switch to the AdventureWorks database and create a new user for the database. If we attempt to login to SQL Server using these credentials, we can.
Next let's disable the login with the following statement.
ALTER LOGIN sumank DISABLE
If someone attempts to login to SQL Server using the  sumank  login, the connection attempt is rejected and Error 18470 is returned - "Login failed for user 'sumank'. Reason: The account is disabled." Additionally, the error is written to the Windows Event Log and can be viewed in the Windows Event Viewer.
Enabling the login can be done with the following statement.
ALTER LOGIN sumank ENABLE
To clean up our example, the following statement may be used to remove the SQL Server login.
DROP USER sumank
DROP LOGIN sumank
Now if someone attempts to login using the  sumank  login, "Login failed for user ' sumank '" is returned and error 18456 is written to the Windows Event Log.

mongoDB error : aborting after fassert() failure

What to do when facing errors on mongoDB “aborting after fassert() failure”

I like errors, in mongoDB this is the first error I faced and luckily many times. This error i faced during restoring name-space on local and restarting db system. I am still searching the exact root cause of this issue but i am able to resolve the current problem through below steps.

Remove all relevant namespace files from data-file route path..Now repair mongo instance using mongod process.mongod --repair ////////// execute command from bin folder path Then start server using mongd process, if started server successfully then ..mongod  ////////// execute command from bin folder path Restore last backups as normal process.Now check database by connecting mongo shell.

After connecting to SQL Azure portal when operation started to deployment below errors occurs.

Validation of the schema model for data package failed. Error SQL71562: Error validating element xx.xxx.xx:function .dbo.xxx has an unresolved refrence to object xx.dbo.xxxx external refrences are not supported when creating a package from this platform.
