Installation of GUI Machine

Hi, I am trying to install GUI machine on a desktop (win 2000), I have the MSSqlserver already running on it. During the GUI machine installation it gives an error "Cannot Connect to DataBase", Error Log = Either the SQLserver is not available or access is denied.

As per the documentation of the server, the userid=ca, and password=null, the system is picking the Host name, Port and UserID automatically.

Appreciate some solution.

    I had the same problem and fixed it by checking the Port No in your SQL Server and then change the default provided by the GUI Machine Installer, this enables it to communicate with the SQL Server...

    To find out the current port for an SQL Server

    get the properties for the server

    click the 'Network Configuration' button

    select TCP/IP from the Enabled protocols list and click the properties button...

    Hope this solves your problem
