For MySQL server, you'll need to add the mySQL Server Java driver in both the Orchestrator and Configuration lib folder.
About the AD, what is the error you have. A guide is available (or will be available really soon) on line
as for the SQL issue you are (were) having, take a look into Stuck with SQL server configuration
With the AD configuration I also needed some time to figure out how it works.
- The user account needed to authenticate against the AD should be entered as email@example.com
- The administrator accounts need to be found in (or below) the configured user OU AND have to member of the vco administrator group.
