How to enable bulk permission in SQL Server

I am trying to insert images using "bulk" into SQL Server 2012. But, am ending up with the error message stating tha:

Msg 4834, Level 16, State 1, Line 2 You do not have permission to use the bulk load statement.

I have "sysadmin" access.


  • Try GRANT ADMINISTER BULK OPERATIONS TO [server_login]. It is a server level permission, not a database level. This has fixed a similar issue for me in that past (using OPENROWSET I believe).
