Having trouble connecting the SQL server while installing ePO

Jump to solution

hI =)

I'm working on a Windows server 2008 R2 enterprise platform, and installed server 2008 R2 express on it before installing the ePO.

The user i'm working with is Local administrator of the server.

When i'm trying to install the ePO server on the "Searching for SQL servers" window I'm getting an error massage :

The SQL is running in the background for sure

When i'm trying to search the SQL server manually, after typing the server deatails, user name and password and clicking next i'm getting this massage:

error_1.JPG

The firewall is turned off and the port 1434 is open

can anyone tell me what em I doing wrong? =\

What is the port listed in SQL conf manager?

If you can connect to TCP port then I will suggest you to check the other parameters like server name, domain,user name etc.

Are you able to install with SQL user?

I will suggest you to look into SQL configuration manager and look for TCP port. The same port, we need to specify in ePO installer.

I looked there and tried connecting the server with the TCP port that is configured in the SQL conf manager ( the port is open by the way ), and still it shows me the same error with the UDP 1434

is there another way?
