Q

To AD or not to AD?

Active Directory or not? My company is a small ISP for user-hosted Web access. Our Web server is IIS and our database is SQL Server 2000. Should I install Active Directory or run standalone? Please give me your opinion. Thanks in advance.
Since you're unsure, I'd say not to use Active Directory. If you do need it, the need will be obvious.
