SQL 2008 Installation

Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I have installed SQL 2008 on a Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise server in my network. At first I was told that the server did not need to be part of my domain but now the consultants changed their minds and told me to make the server join the domain. Will this cause any problems with my SQL installation? Do I need to reinstall SQL after the server has joined the domain?

BTW the application that uses the SQL server only uses local users, by that I mean that no user domain accounts are defined on the SQL server.

Thank you!
