Building a Better sp_help_revlogin

Eitan Blumin remembers:

Anyways, with that obvious answer out of the way, let’s talk about something more interesting, like sp_help_revlogin.

Remember sp_help_revlogin? It’s that stored procedure that Microsoft published more than 20 years ago, that never found its way into the SQL Server built-in system procedures. Microsoft still maintains that same KB page till this day (by “maintains”, I mean copy-and-pasting it from one place to another as they change their KB platforms).

Read on to understand what this is and several ways of doing the same thing better, including a new sp_help_revlogin2 that Eitan has put together.
