The root cause was that: java.sql.SQLException: SQLException occurred in JDBCPool while attempting to connect, please check your username, password, URL, and other connectivity info.

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
