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

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.

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
