I am right now try to create a SQL server 2016 listener by reading this:
question is :
1) in the article above:
" To create a listener, we will also need an IP and Computer in the AD, and don’t forget that the cluster computer should have full access to the SQL Server computer account."
I am now have and IP address and a computer name (name only), is that mean that Computer name must exists in the AD for it to works? currently that computer name is not register in the AD.
now I am created a SQL 2016 AOG in a domain less configuration and I am not sure if listener will work in this case.
2) to create the listener, should/must the SQL server need to join the AD too ?
when creating the listener on the wizard shown in the link above:
"A new window will be opened. Fill the “Listener DNS Name” with the name of your AD Computer Name. In our case SQLSRVAG01. In the “Port” field, choose an adequate port, something that is not being used.
what is listener DNS name ? the listener name I have ? e.g. SQLSERVERListener ? do I need domain surfix for it?
I can't create one using that name only and the error is :
