Property ValueA ServerActiveDirectory object that specifies the Active Directory settings for the database.
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.
