Hi,

I have installed webfocus server,client and developer studio and configured the database SQL Server 2008 R2.Everything works fine.
Later created new instance name for the database SQL Server 2008 R2 and configured that instance name to webfocus but now unable to login managed reporting,view builder and report caster.

The error message I am getting is Invalid user credentials.

Could anyone please let me know the solution for this?

Thanks,
Chiranjeevi A.

It is quite possible that somewhere in the configuration you're still pointing to the 'old' instance. Check every config file in the system to see if the correct instance is specified with the correct username and password.
There are too many possibilities to start naming all of them, you'd better do a text search on the install drectories for the new and old instance names. And don't forget to search registry entries as well...

Hi GamP,

Thanks for your response.

I have verified everything and manually changed the mrrealm.cfg file.

Initially it was

jdbc:sqlserver://HOSTNAME:1433;DatabaseName=WebFocus_Realm;
SelectMethod=cursor

Changed to

jdbc:sqlserver://HOSTNAME\\Instancename:1433;DatabaseName=WebFocus_Realm;
SelectMethod=cursor

Still I am not able to login into MR, View Builder and RC.

Please suggest me the solution.

Thanks,
Chiranjeevi A.

Have you configured the named instance to use a static port?

MS SQL Server 2005 and later defaults to dynamic ports for named instances. This will cause you to be unable to connect to them over JDBC.
