Re: SQL Services account question...

A SQL Server server which is part of a domain and its service is not a domain account. Why not? Because using a domain account as a SQL Server service account is a recommended way.

My guess is, you get the error because SQL Server service can't communicate with your AD server as it's a local service.

OK, here's my problem.

I have a SQL 2005 Server that is part of a domain. The SQL services start
with a
local account and not a domain account. The issue I am seeing is that when
I go
to backup a database that is owned by a Domain account the querying of AD
for the
account information fails. Error below:

[298] SQLServer Error: 15404, Could not obtain information about Windows NT

Then in the Security event log I get an error at the same time that states:

An error occurred during logon
Source: Security Event ID: 537

So the question is, how can I get this to work correctly? Should I just
change the owner of the database?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
