Dim db As Database  
db = srv.Databases("AdventureWorks2012")  

'Register the AdventureWorks2012 database in the Active Directory   
'directory service.  
db.ActiveDirectory.Register()  

PowerShell

$srv = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")  
$db = New-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Database  
$db = $srv.Databases.Item("AdventureWorks2012")  
$db.ActiveDirectory.Register()  

Remarks

The ActiveDirectory property points to a DatabaseActiveDirectory object, which can be used to register the referenced database Active Directory.

When you call the Register method to add a database to Active Directory, users can use Active Directory to find this database. This is useful in large organizations with many databases.
