I am currently trying to install a standby Blackberry Enterprise Server.
I currently have a functioning BES 5.0 SP1 server and want to test the new HA.
I logged into my server which I intend to use as the standby BES as the besadmin account and proceeded to run setup.
I selected "I would like the installation process to use an existing Blackberry Configuration Database" and hit next. At the next screen I selected "Remote" for database location and proceeded to put the SQL Server name and Blackberry Configuration Database name. For the SQL server name I entered it as it is displayed on the other BES "host\instance"
I have "Back up the existing Blackberry Configuration Database to the default location before upgrading the Blackberry Configuration Database" selected. and Windows authentication.
The error I receive when I hit next is "The setup application cannot connect to the database server that you specified. Verify the information that you provided and verify that the database server is running. For more information, see the setup log."
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
