Hi,

I am trying to configure microsoft SharePoint 2010, we have share point 2007 installed and working.

After installing Sharepoint 2010 and running the configuration wizard.

I select "Create new server farm" and get to the stage where it asks me for the Database Server, Database name (default: SharePoint_Config), Username and password.

Our server name is SBS08.

After filling them out as follows;

Database Server: SBS08
Database name: SharePoint_Config
Username: domain\Administrator
password: *********

OR

Database Server: SBS08\MICROSOFT##SSEE
Database name: SharePoint_Config
Username: domain\Administrator
password: *********


I recieve the following error.

SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard

Cannot connect to database master at SQL server at SBS08. The database might not exsist, or the current user does not have permission to connect to it.

Are you trying to install SharePoint 2010 over the top of 2007?  Is it currently on SP2 ?  Did you read the following:

Named pipes are enabled and it is not the firewall.

We have 2007 installed an have installed 2010 over the top. 2007 still works though. We are currently repairing the installation to see if this changes anything.

What I am most curious about is what to type in the SQL Server text field? Should I be able to just type in our server name.

We have SQL Server 2005, 2008 and 2008 R2 installed.

Thanks for your help.

Yes I can see this is what it is asking for. But I do not know what the instance name is. How would I find this out? Do I need to create an instance?

OK we have worked it out now. The Wizard suggested in its wording that it would create a new instance. But this was not the case. To fix this error we had to create a new black instance with SQL Server 2008 R2 Studio. Then type this instance name into the wizard.
