  • Mixed Mode to Native Mode - Any SQL7 inpact

    Hi there,

    Just a quick question, I am planning to upgrade the domain to Native from Mixed so I can assign specific IP's to dialin users etc under AD.

    All Windows 2003 DC's and a 2000 box etc so all ready for the step up.

    Someone mentioned to me would SQL 7 authentication be effected, being an older NT days DB program .... I would imagine not as it doesn't effect authentication just groups and options within the AD etc.

    A quick Google serched came up empty but to be certain I thought I would see if anyone has had any issues in the past or could confirm for me that SQL7 would not be effected.

    thanks in Advance

    If SQL is currently working, there is no reason it will stop after switching to Native mode.

    Mixed/Naitve mode is about what DCs can be in AD and some added funtionality you get when in Native mode.
