Hi developers,
I am trying to connect from dreamweaver to my sql server database in my local machine.
while creating dsn from dreamweaver, as I must configure RDS setup, it prompted me for rds username and password. I know the RDS password as I gave one while installing coldfusion, but I did not give any user name for rds while installing cf server. So, what user name should i give now for rds? is it my windows username? plz advise.

    Its the same as the one you use in DW.  Generally with a single user its just admin or nothing.

    That's what I said nothing :)  That is unless you have setup Multi user RDS configurations.
