Hi All,

I have installed SQL server. I am able to login SQL query. my SQL server name is "WINDSON" now when I am trying to create repository in MDM console I gave server name as "WINDSON" and I select "SQL_Server" as DBMS server Type and give user name and password of SQL server. It is showing Error "Unable to Connect Database Server" I removed SQL server and MDM and again reinstall it but I am gettig the same error. SQL server is working fine but when I try to connect MDM console at that time it gives error.

So can any one tel me the step by step process to Integreate SQL server with MDM console.

Any help from an one will be great for me.

    Hi Ashish

    This error would have caused becaz of SQl Server Registration failure.. Try to process New SQL Server Registration steps given below:

    1. Go to SQL Server Enterprise Manager

    2. Right click on the Current server Group and select

    New SQL Server Registration.

    3. a. Choose the Server name from the available server

    b. Select authentication mode - Select SQl Server

    login instead of windows

    c. Give new login userid & password.

    4. Complete the process and perform FINISH...

    5. Now try with the new Userid & password.

    Hope this might helps....

      Just check the SQL server authentication mode. Make sure you set the SQL Server Authentication to "SQL Server and Windows".

      To check/change the SQL Server Authentication.

      Open SQL Server Enterprise MAnager, Right click on the SQL Server ->Properties->In the Security Tab, see the option for the Authentication and change it to "SQL Server and Windows"

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks and Regards
