I am trying to install SharePoint 2010 Enterprise. I just reloaded an HP Server with a brand new Windows Server 2008 R2 OS / It is running an a Primary domain controller, I have AD installed on this serve. I have installed all the SharePoint pre-reqs.
SharePoint states it installed correctly but I constantly get the following error message and cant get past it:
[SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard]
Cannot connect to database master at SQL Server at [server name]. The database might not exist, or the current user does not have permission to connect to it.
Do I need SQL 2008 server installed in order for SharePoint 2010 to install correctly ? It does not specifit that in the pre-reqs during the install of SharePoint 2010.
