Hi expersts,

     I have a windows 2000 Advance Server running as Domain Controller and Has SQL Server 2000 installed..I know all the users in my domain are stored in Active directory schema.
     Just want to know if its possible to integrate the Active Directory users and computers to SQL Server 2000?I want to create a database in SQL Server containing all the users in my domain and use it in my user profiles application.
     All i want is get all the users from active directory and store it in a table then use this in any application that needs it.I will not make an update from sql server then save it to active directory schema.I will not do this..What i want is pulled all the domain users from there.
     If this is possible how can i do this?

     Many Thanks...

So you want to make a copy of Active Directory into a SQL database.  Should be possible - Active Directory can be queried through LDAP.  Writing a script VBScript should be possible.  (Sorry, I can't help much more than pointing this out).
