Hello Experts

Situation: Windows 2008 server
I want to installe Sharepoint 2010 and SQL on 1 server.

Sql 2005 is running

After installation of the sharepoint 2010 i must start the wizard, there i have to choose to connect to a existing farm or make a new farm.

We dont have a farm, so i choosse the second option.

As database server i choose localhost
I accept the default name: sharpoint_config

user and password

after a while i get the answer cannot connect to sql server, database may not exist or the permissions are not valid

any idea ??

thanks in advance

regards
henk

you can use SQL Server configuration manager to find out correct SQL instance name. and please ensure that you run configuration wizard as user with access to SQL server instance.

Ivan_padabed, thanks for the response. The instance name is sbsmonitoring (i think) i didnot change anything.
I can start the sql server studio with no problem, but when i open the permissions and i want to grant myself then i get an exception error..'grantor does not have grant permissions  microsoft sql server error #4613'

i gave myself all the permission that has anything to do with sql....

If i use sbsmonotoring as a server name then i get the response that there is  no server with that name, if i try localhost\sbsmonitoring then i get the following response:
'sql server not supported version 9.0.4053.0 got to the following site for information' wel, this site doesnot exist...

Do you thing it would be wise to install sql server 2008 ??

You may close the ticket.. i de-installed SQL server 2005 and installed sql server 2008. I had now the opportunity to tell sql what user is the administrator of sql. i think this was the clue...

thank you for your time sofar.

How do i close the ticket ? can i give the points to myself ?  :)

thanks again
