Hi there,

I'm trying to install HP SIM on SBS 2007 with the default settings, in database configuration I have the dafaults, with instance name MICROSOFT##SSEE. When I click next it comes with error message "TCP/IP protocol is not enabled for the specified database server. Please enable the TCP/IP protocol". I have checked in SQL Config. Manager all the TCP/IP's and all seems to be enabled, also the port no (1433) is added in Win firewall as exclusion.

Thank you

OK, check on DNS server in revers lookup zone if you have conigured records for DNS and your SQL server. If not, create them and check once again.

I have checked the reverse lookup zone and there is only "in-addr.arpa Active Directory-Integrated Primary" record,inside that I can see a few PTR records but none of them is for SQL server. Can you please advice me where exactly to look and how to add the DNS record. Thank you

ok in reverse lookup zone of your DNS server go to:

172.16.x.x subnet then open third server's IP octet (if your server's IP is 172.16.0.10) -> go to 0
and create new pointer (PTR record) for last octet value (10 in my example) assign IP to proper host from DNS choosing "Browwse" button, point proper DNS server and find its name. Then try again.

I have created the DNS but no change. The database I have on the SIM setup is MICROSOFT##SSEE but if I look through the system I can't find it, there is only SERVERNAME\SBSMONITORING database. Do I need to create new DB Instance so it gives me another option in the setup menu?

yes, you cannot find it because it is set up on express edition of sql, so it is not managable (I think) :)

Do you have something in event viewer logs?

No just one.

If I can only see the microsoft defaut instance and not the SBSMONITORING one how would i make possible for HP SIM setup to see new instance if i created a new one.

Sorry for delay. I just remembered one thing, some time ago I also had problem with connection to database (Express Edition of SQL) and I used 3rd party software to access it. It is called HeidiSQL, it's free and simple in use. Could you check it if it works, please?

HeidiSQL -> http://www.heidisql.com/

Additionally, check if your database have set proper permissions Windows authentication/SQL authentication (sa user) and if the database has set password.
