I am trying to setup a test environment with 3 laptops running Windows server 2008 R2 and a Cisco 2950 switch. I have a DC1 running on one machine (withVMware), a SQL Server 2008 on a second machine and would like to install SCCM on the third. When running the SCCM installation prereq check, I received the 'SQL Server sysadmin rights' and some other errors. ConfigMgrSetup log indicates that it "could not connect SQL server 'master' db". Can someone help me resolve this error?
