Updated text: 17 July 2006
The ActiveDirectory property points to a DatabaseActiveDirectory object, which can be used to register the referenced database Active Directory.
When you call the Register method to add a database to Active Directory, users can use Active Directory to find this database. This is useful in large organizations with many databases.
This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.
|Registering a database in Active Directory can be performed only on instances of SQL Server that are installed on computers that are running Windows 2000 or later versions.|
