One of my blog readers sent an email where he wanted my quick opinion about SQL Server cluster.
As a part of my independent consulting, I also provide a high level overview of the migration strategy. As a part of this engagement, my client wanted me to provide steps to move AlwaysOn availability group from DomainOld to DomainNew. This was happening because they were acquired by another company and they need to migrate all assets to a new domain.
This blog is an outcome of questions asked by my client and answer provided to them after doing a lot of searches on the internet. I am very confident that sooner or later, these questions will show up in interview questions and answers. Let us understand about the SQL Domain Controller.
Q1. Can I install SQL Server on a domain controller?
Answer: This is no restriction in SQL Server setup which would block the installation of SQL Server on Domain Controller. So, yes – it can be installed.
