Hi there,
I am installing a brand new sharepoint server 2013 on server 2008 R2.  I have just installed the SQL server R2. Clicked on the sharepoint product configuration wizard and it asks me the SQL server name.  How and where I can find that, Tried MSSQLSERVER, local etc.  No luck, need help.

Hi,

Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 -> Configuration Tools -> SQL Server Configuration Manager

Then on the left hand side select the first node "SQL Server Services" and then you can see on the right side the name of your instances.

While running the sharepoint configuration I get to a window which asks for databse server and database name etc:
then I put
in the Database Server: I put in the SQLVSSP
Database name:  Sharepoint_Config
Username: mydomain\SPServiceAccount
Pass
THe error comes up:  Sharepoint products configuration wizard: Cannot connect to the database master at SQL server at SQLVSSP.  The database might not exist or the current user does not have permission to connect to it
DO I have to manaullay create the database?

Hi,
the account with whom you install/run Sharepoint config wizard have to be member of Sql server roles dbcreator and securityadmin.
