We have a vindows NT 4.0 SP6 server with SQL 6.5 that has been converted to a virtual machine via the VMWare Converter 3.0.3 build-89816. The conversion was an aparent success with the exception of the error
"A connection could not be established to <SERVERNAME> - [DB-Library] Unable to connect: SQL Server is unavailable or does not exist. Specified SQL server not found".
How do we get arround this? The reason for this P2V is that we need to convert the existing SQL 6.5 database and move it to a new SQL2005 and we are using the VM to test different paths to get this DB to 2005.
