SQL 2005 Database Mirroring - AD required? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, for SQL 2005 - to set up database mirroring, is it required to have Active Directory installed or to be part of a domain? I am looking to use a workgroup with the SQL machines only and to not reference any domain and cannot find this information - is this possible?

    This is primarily because the domain controller is Novell eDirectory. I am aware of Microsoft's SFN, but would like to not have to use it or any AD if at all possible.

    Thanks and Regards,
    James

  • AD is not required. you will need to use certificates to setup the mirrorin session.

  • Has anyone answered this question?

    I am also interested in using workgroup accounts opposed to AD accounts if possible.
