B1 2005A SP01 Client Install Fails

I'm installing the client from the B1_SHR folder on our server, but every time I get to the third step of the process where it tries to connect to the server, it doesn't accept any username and password, including a valid sa username and password. I have tried this on multiple machines, running XP & Vista, all with the exact same results. Any ideas why this won't work?

    Hi,

    Please try to set up an ODBC connection first. If this works then the installations should be ok, if not then there is a connections problem whihc requires further investigation (Anti Virus/Names Pipes/TCPIP/Firewall) Firewall is a common cause especially since windows has its own version.

    Hope this help,

    Paul

    Hi Derek,

    We are also facing the similar problem. Can any SAP Professional see our problem and help us out.

    We also get a message saying. " the setup has failed to automatically connect to the server" and even if we give the correct database username and password it doesnt accept.

    Chidamber.

    All,

    I found this issue many times before, and the solution is very simple:

    - replace client installation source on the B1_SHR with the original client installation source in the SAP B1 Installation CD (Packages\Client\).

    - install B1 client as usual.

    - set connection to database server.

    Hope it's work for you 😊
