    Unanswered: Domain Name

    Hi All,

    I am in the process of installing SQL Server 2005. Under Service Account I am selecting the domain user account option. It asks for the username, password and the domain name. How can I find out what the domain name is?

    Thanks.

    Find My Computer on the start menu, choose properties, and look at the Computer Name tab. If You are not in a domian but workgroup, you should keep the domain field empty.

    Btw, you are not planning to let the SQL Server Service run as an administrator account do you? That is really NOT a good idea.
