Hi

I'm trying to configuration my SharePoint to use a SQL server as it's database.  When I try to provide it with the user account, it says "The user name is invalid.  The account must be a valid domain account."

The thing is both of the server are not in any domain, they are both in independent work groups.  Do I have to add both server into a specific domain?   Thanks.

Yes.  Sharepoint is designed to scale across multiple servers and it is essential that your servers are joined to a domain controller to enforce trusted connections between the servers.  This also means that your SQL account must be a domain account with permissions granted to login and access your SQL server database.
