Trying to do a fresh install of vmware's vcenter 4 and I get the following message when entering the db credentials. I've tried both sql and windows authentication, same thing. Trying this on SQL 2005. When I test connectivity through the DSN it connects with no problems at all.
I checked the sql server and the agent is definitely running. Maybe there is something I'm missing on the SQL Server configuration.
If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks.
