Finding SQL Servers with the MAP Toolkit

Lee Markum goes to active sonar:

A full tutorial on using the MAP Toolkit is available here on Microsoft Learn. MAP Toolkit installation is fairly straight forward but is also included in the  tutorial from Microsoft that I linked to above. You can install it on your own desktop and then scan Active Directory for SQL Servers. Please be sure to notify your System Administrators BEFORE you run the scan as it will set off intrusion detection alarms.

Sure, it’s no nmap sweep, but any blog post which includes a warning like that is worth the read.
