make sure that the datasource exist. And you can test the connection. To test that log into the cfAdmin and go to datasource and click on the test connection

Thank you, everyone.  It turned out that the DS in  Cold Fusion was using the wrong port.  Once I figured out what port SQL was listening on and changed that it worked - I also had to use the IP of the SQL server the instance is running on, does not work with FQDM  only.  

JohnHowlett, thanks for the link, it was very helpful!
