OK so the backend databse is sql 2000 so I take it thats why I am having issues? Is there much involved in upgrading the database?
Can I ask if you got a solution to this, I use sql 2005 but I still have the same problem you describe?
Same here, same problem but no solution yet...
All fixed for me; when you do the install and it gets to the DB details I was putting in servernam\EPOSERVER when it shoule of been servernam\SQLexpress.
The DB instance, you can verify in ePO \core\config page (https://localhost:8443/core/config).
The Same, you need to write while installing WCF.
If you are using full version of SQL then DB server will be the machine name where SQL is installed orelse normally the DB server will be 'machine name'\DB instance.
If you use SQL 2005 not the express with epo in default instance.
The DB server will be "MACHINENAME" if you not modify it.
If you ues SQL 2005 express with epo in default instance.
The DB server will be "Machinename\eposerver"
If you have SQL 2005 management studio. you will see it in the top left corner when you login in it.
or you can see the DB instance, you can verify in ePO \core\config page (https://localhost:8443/core/config).
