Hello,

I am trying to configure an instance of SQL Server 2008 across virtual clients in Windows Server 2008.  The environment has these components:

Host: Windows Server 2008 64-bit
Guests (clients): Windows Server 2008 32-bit.
SQL Server 2008 installed on the host and one of the clients

The host and the clients are networked through an internal connection.  They are visible and shareable, I can ping all machines.  The SQL Servers perform with no issues on each individual machine, however, when I try to set up an ODBC across the images, it fails.  I tried different protocols with the same result.

My questions:

1) Is it possible at all to configure a SQL Server instance across images?

2) If yes, what is the trick to make it work?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you!

1) Is it possible at all to configure a SQL Server instance across images?

of course, you may want to make sure you have network connection, make sure the firewall in the operating system isn't open.

2) If yes, what is the trick to make it work?

no trick, as long as you have the nic card bound to the virtual server and you can access resources on the network and internet. Treat it just like another machine if it were on a physical box. It appears this is an issue with the SQL config and not with hyper-v
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you!
