Can you please explain this: (how SQL server is not the application that is described below)
"VSA is not suited for applications in an Active Directory domain that require a centralized access control for the service account they run under."

what will sql server look like if it required a centralized access control for the service account they run under.

That doesn't apply to SQL Server. Is most for other kind of applications and that's why Microsoft came with MSAs after releasing the concept of VSAs.

OK OK.. understood...
:)

but talking about SQL,
SQL Server is not "centralized access"? (in the above context)
(I meant in the way, an instance can be hit by many people.. does that mean the instance is Centralized?)

I think that's relative to the service account. It runs locally and doesn't have access to the network (if we are talking about a non-domain account).

does that mean to word

MSA is recommended for SQL Server in an Active Directory domain that require a centralized access control for the (DOMAIN) service account they run under.

VSA is recommended for SQL Server in an Active Directory domain that require a centralized access control for the (non-DOMAIN) service account they run under.
