Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in microsoft.sqlserver.smo.dll)

public ServerActiveDirectory ActiveDirectory { get; }
/** @property */
public ServerActiveDirectory get_ActiveDirectory ()

public function get ActiveDirectory () : ServerActiveDirectory

Property Value

A ServerActiveDirectory object that specifies the Active Directory settings for the database.

Updated text:

The ActiveDirectory property points to a ServerActiveDirectory object, which can be used to register the instance of SQL Server in Active Directory.

When you call the Register method to add an instance of SQL Server to Active Directory, users can use Active Directory to find this instance of SQL Server. This is useful in large organizations with many instances of SQL Server.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.


'Connect to the local, default instance of SQL Server.
Dim srv As Server
srv = New Server
'Register the instance of SQL Server in the Active Directory directory service.
srv.ActiveDirectory.Register()

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
