I am trying to install client and in one of the installation steps, we need to enter database connection information.
We use sql server and our database is on a named instance.
When I give the named instance name in the connection, it does not connect. Installation does go through and it completes. But, when I try to bring up the ibi_apps page, it does not bring the page and also the repository is not created.
If I connect to the database that is not on a named instance, it connects fine.
Anyone encountered this issue. I did go through the forum and noticed that one of the users had the same issue. It was mentioned that if we assign dedicated port, it would work. We tried that option and it still did not work.
Please advice.This message has been edited. Last edited by: <Kathryn Henning>,
Not sure that it will fix your issue but try this.
In edasprof.prf where your connection is defined, have the "np:" added before your server's name:
ENGINE SQLMSS SET CONNECTION_ATTRIBUTES YourConnectionName 'np:YourServerName'/,;YourDbName
And you'll maybe need help from your DBA to have proper access right.

In the server entry I have
for the named instance "sql_dev" on port 1439. If you are using the default port of 1433 then you don't need the port.
On one system I needed to use \\ rather than \ for the seperator between server and instance but that was a long time ago.
