i have do replace a sql-server 2005 with 2008/R2. We do not know which client have access to which database, as this has not been documented. Is there a way, for a period of time to monitor all connection activities?
-which User or IP have access to
-what database
-maybe other information like time, table, view, SP ...

Thank you

You could regularly monitor the •sys.dm_exec_connections and sys.dm_exec_sessions , which list all connections and sessions respectively.
You could match this up to a list of database users and their roles -
