About Piyush Bajaj

I am very passionate about SQL Server. I also did certification on MCSA – SQL Server 2012, Querying and Administering; MCTS – SQL Server 2008, Database Development; and MCTS – SQL Server 2005, Implementation & Maintenance, which helped me to get more knowledge and interest on this field.Please feel free to drop me any question online or offline, I will try to give you the best possible answer from my side.Right now I am working as a SQL Server developer in TCS. I have an experience of just 2.6 years, well I can only say that “If you have an interest and passion, experience might become a very small thing”.

  1. Hence we require Domain User Account (or Domain Admin Account as per the requirement) when we want to setup Log Shipping, Replication, Database Mirroring, Remote backup plan etc. where there is a requirement to access the external resources.

    Nice one Piyush…

    can you please help me on this…

    1. All the services were enabled.

    2. instance name was correct.

    3.windows firewall port 1433was configured.

    Ihope it was not due to local account.

  5. Hi,

    I just want to ask you that is there any difference if we run our software( sql server 2008 as back end) with only 1 domain user instead of making more domain user 1 for each user..

  6. Hi there, thanks in advance

    I have a problem similar to that. If I have 2 servers, one for SQL Server database and other for AD (Domain Controller). I want to restrict the access to my SQL Server database through getting access from Domain accounts only. i.e. if any one doe not login through through a Domain account, he will not able to access my database. How can I configure this?
