Installing HP SIM 7.3
Posted on 2014-09-05
Stuck at the database part. The system has sql on it but I get this at the command line.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Binn>sqlcmd
HResult 0x2, Level 16, State 1
Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server .
Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft SQL Native Client : An error has occurred while establi
shing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failu
re may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not
allow remote connections..
Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft SQL Native Client : Login timeout expired.
If I supply the local admin account I get the same thing. If I try to use a remote host I get a similar error that I do when trying to install it locally. It just says Unable to connect to the specified host. Please check the Host database and port values and be sure the target database is running. Also be sure that the target database installation has the latest service pack. THis is a WIndows 2008 machine. The remote machine I tried is Windows 2003. In the surface area configuration I have remote connections allowed.
