Can anyone please help me with this as I'm sure im missing something small.
I am installing SP2010 on a Win7 Prof machine. All components on one machine. SQL2008R2 installed and all the features are activeted as per this script on this site:
But now I'm executing this in Powershell:
$sp_cfdatabasename = "SP2010_ConfigDB" $sp_cadatabasename = "SP2010_Admin_Content" $sp_databaseserver = "HomeDev" $sp_passphrase = (ConvertTo-SecureString "SP_Svc1_" -AsPlainText -force) $sp_password = (ConvertTo-SecureString "SP_Svc1" -AsPlainText -force) $sp_username = "Lüs-PC\SP_Svc" # Clean up the credentials $sp_credentials = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PsCredential $sp_username,$sp_password # Execute the config wizard Write-Host "Add configuration and administration databases" New-SPConfigurationDatabase -DatabaseName $sp_cfdatabasename -DatabaseServer $sp_databaseserver -AdministrationContentDatabaseName $sp_cadatabasename -Passphrase $sp_passphrase -FarmCredentials $sp_credentials
I keep on getting this below:
New-SPConfigurationDatabase : Cannot connect to database master at SQL server at HomeDev. The database might not exist, or the current user does not have permission to connect to it.
I did verify all permissions for the installation account and SP_Svc account in SQL.
HomeDev is a SQL Alias for my server name as I have a special character in my machine name.
Does anyone have any info on why this is happaning?
