I'm using the Colde Fusion 6 & SQL Server. But I couldn't create a data source in the Cold Fusion Admin part. i even re-installed the cold fusion server but the problem is still there. Kinldy guide m ein this regard.

Also, do let me know if there is any other way to create a Data source for cold fusion without using the Admin Side.

since you are creating a SQL datasource, what info did you enter into the admin screens?

does your server have a connection to the SQL server or is the db local?

Rare possibility - this error can occur if the password is too long (I think over 15 characters)

More possible cause: the account may be wrong.
Can you connect using this account from something like the Query Analyzer?  This will indicate if it is SQL or CF
