HP SIM Installation
Posted on 2014-09-08
Hi, I am installing HP Systems Insight Manager on a HP Proliant ML350p Gen 8 server with Windows Server 2008 R2 OS.
The server is already configured with SQL express for Symantec Backup Exec 2014.
When I run the HP SIM installation, at the Database configuration screen it pre populates the Instance name with BKUPEXEC.
I guess I need to have a unique name for the HP SIM DB, I have tried MSSQLSERVER plus a random name but neither work.
MSSQLSERVER gives an error of MSSQLSERVER name cannot be used, any other name gives me the error of unable to connect to the specified host.
