InActiveDirectory Property

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The InActiveDirectory property specifies whether the referenced publication is represented as an object in Microsoft Active Directory.

.InActiveDirectory [= value]


An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list





HRESULT GetInActiveDirectory(LPBOOL pRetVal);
HRESULT SetInActiveDirectory(BOOL NewValue);

This property gives users a way to make a subset of publication properties available to Active Directory so that other users can find this publication using Microsoft Windows Active Directory Services on the Windows 2003 or Windows 2000 operating systems. Using Active Directory, you can search publication objects to view or retrieve properties of a Publication object. When a publication property is changed, it is reflected in Active Directory if the InActiveDirectory property is set to TRUE, and if the publication property is included in the subset of properties available to Active Directory. However, users are not advised to change publication properties directly using Active Directory. Instead, set InActiveDirectory to TRUE to make a subset of this publication's properties available to Active Directory.

If an application calls InActiveDirectory on an instance of Microsoft SQL Server version 7.0, the constant, SQLDMO_E_SQL80ONLY, and the message "This property or method requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later" are returned.
