    SQL and AD are indepent.

    SQL is database engine.
    AD is used to store information about the network resources across a domain and also centralize the network.

      Thanks, alien_ri

      That's what I thought, but I saw buttons on SQL 2000 instance property so as to add / refresh / remove SQL instance to AD. I just wonder what good does it do.

      Regards,

        Re: Add/Remove SQL instance to AD

        The integration that you are referring too seems to simply be the ability to publish a SQL Server and its databases in Active Directory much like file shares or printers are. That seems to be a feature with limited usage as only applications that are designed to use AD to look for resources would be able to use it. Have a look at this article.
