Creating a second DBConnect connection for SQL Server

Greetings,

I am running BI7 on a Windows server OS using SQL Server 2008 - this is my default DBConnect connection. I need to add a second SQL Server connection to a non-SAP source system. I assume that I do not need to install DB Client or the DBSL librarries since they should already be on my BI7 servers (CI and app servers).

Where can I find instructions on how to add this second SQL Server connection for DBConnect?

Thanks in advance,

Dennis Beausoleil

    Hello!

    I would like to extend this question. I need to connect to an SQL Server database which is not listening onthe standard Port 1433 but on a different one. How can I implement that? Is there a way to add a port to the connectionstring?

    I didn't find any information about that...
