I cannot get my lab environment to install Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager.  At the Database Configuration part it says "Setup cannot connect to the specified SQL Server instance."  

I have turned off both firewalls, verified that TCPIP is enabled on the SQL server, everywhere there is a port it is set to 1433 (default settings), started the SQL browser service, can UNC to SQL server and ping it and it APPEARS that the Instance Name is autopopulated when I try to fill out the form in the SCVMM install.  

Server Name: SCVMM
OS: Win Srv 2012

Server Name: MSSQL
OS: Win Srv 2012
SQL: MS SQL 2012

SCVMM Install Error

Also, did a netstat for the PID of the SQL Server and I can see that it is listening:

Added a new login in SQL for a domain user with rights to everything and it worked.  Go figure that the domain admin account didn't work out of the box.
