vmware Orchestrator SQL Setup

I am trying to create a vmware lab to test View.
I have created a couple of vm's using vSphere:
1 x x86 Windows 2008 -View Server
1 x x64 Windows 2008 - vCenter
1 x x86 Windows 7 - workstation

the DC is a physical server running sbs 2008

When trying to setup the Orchestrator SQL connection i get this message:

Unknown host: Error when connecting to host localhost/127.0.0.1, port 1433: Connection refused: connect

I have been through other posts and changed the port number t o1433 within the SQL Configuration manager but that didn't work either.

Can anyone explain that message to me in more detail?

Thanks, SQL Screen

I reinstall the vCenter program
Added 1433 to all the IP settings within Configuration Manager and it worked second time. must have been a bad install.

thanks for you help though

You could try using the IP instead of localhost.

I have already tried that along with the dns name of the host. It will resolve the host IP in the error message but will not connect.

I have installed SQL management studio express and verified that the admin account has the right access and the database/instance names are correct.
