I am setting up a test server for Sharepoint 2007.  When I use the Sharepoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard to connect to our SQL 2008 Server, I receive the error below.  I want to know if I need to open any special ports on my SQL server 2008 for Sharepoint.

Error: An exception of type Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.PostSetupConfigurationTaskException was thrown.  Additional exception information: Failed to connect to the database server or the database name does not exist.  Ensure the database server exists, is a Sql server, and that you have the appropriate permissions to access the database server.  To diagnose the problem, review the extended error information located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS\PSCDiagnostics_5_15_2009_10_20_28_928_1777412741.log.  Please consult the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard help for additional information regarding database server security configuration and network access.
Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.PostSetupConfigurationTaskException: Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.PostSetupConfigurationTaskException' was thrown.

First off all you have to check 2 points.
1 Your sql server is installed and the service is running. Check the service status under services.
2. Make sure that the account you are trying to access to the server has defined in server as login and datbase as account. These are related but different tasks and need to be rewiewed.

All SQL services are running except SQL Server Agent which is disabled (is that correct).  The sharepoint service account has login enabled and sysadmin role.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
