When creating a ODBC System data source (because I have an application that requires this), I used a Sql Server account and tested my connection; this worked fine. Under guidance due to our domain standards, I've been told to use a trused Windows NT account instead. I was provided with a service account name and it's password, but when testing the connection it fails. So, can an Active Directory service account be used at all, or is their possibly something else wrong? Thanks in advance.
