    I am trying to configure SQL Server 2008 on a Windows 2003 server to use
    domain user accounts from the SBS server, but it only seems to want to let me
    use local ones. I'm a newbie at this - is there anything I should be doing
    beyond creating normal low-privilege accounts on SBS, and then trying to tell
    the SQL Server config wizard about them? I can use the popup windows to
    browse and successfully search for accounts like
    MYSBS2008SERVER\SQLSvrAgentUser, but their 'credentials' are invalid. On the
    other hand MY2003SERVER\SQLSvrAgentUser works if I create it.
