I am trying to install MS Ultrasound to Monitor sysvol replication.  http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=61acb9b9-c354-4f98-a823-24cc0da73b50&DisplayLang=en
I am very ignorant of the ways of sql, but during installation it asks you to enter the database server (e.g. server\DBInstance).  I have a sql 2005x64. I created a new DB called 'USound'.  I have tried server renditions of server name\DB name.  The install always fails.  Obviously I have the naming convention wrong.  Can anyone help?

Are you installing on to the C:\ partition or another partition on the machine? Also did you try using 'local'?

C:\.  The SQL server is on another server, Ultrasound is being installed locallay but SQL is not local.

ensure your sql instance is lstening on network.
have you some others net apps wich use it ?
use netstat -an in cmd prompt on sql server to show listening ports, usually 1433.
you can use sql tool to enable tcp/ip listening or look at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/823938/en-us

Yes, there is another server who is using it.

I got it to work using the follwing notation

<server>\MSSQL&<DB>

Where text between<> must be filled with real information.
