Blackberry Enterprise Server Remote DB Connection

I am attempting to install BES Express on a server running MSExchange 2010.  I have another server running SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise.  I selected to use an existing SQL server instead of installing a SQL Server Express edition on my Exchange server.

BES install has reached a point where everything is installed correctly until I get to the db connection screen.  Attached is a screenshot showing that I have selected a remote SQL instance, used the default config db name, used the static port 1433 as verified in SQL Server Management for TCP/IP and used Windows authentication (which is the authentication for the SQL server).

Because this is a "remote" SQL server, I am not sure what to use for the server name.  I have tried the internal IP, internal IP\SQL instance (as shown in attached image), the SQL host name, host name\instance name, internal IP\hostname, hostname\internal IP....

At this point I am at a lost.  I followed the directions RIM provided on the BES Express website.  At this point I am not sure if it is a permissions error or the syntax that I am using to connect to the SQL server.  RIM provides no info for remote SQL server connections as they suggest using SQL Server Express (boooo!).  Help on EE would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

Are you using MSDE? by default, MSDE loads with no network connections. If you look in \program files\microsoft sql server\80\tools\binn there is a utility called svrnetcn.exe which will allow you to add a network connection. You'll have to restart SQL for it to kick in.

Saw this on multiple forums but had no solution posted.  Would be helpful to know that once port 1433 was opened on windows firewall on SQL server the installation process continued.
