We are trying to build a web app, in ASP .net
but are having problems connecting to the Sql Server instance on the IPCC Server.
The error appears to be related to the fact that the SQL server is not allowing remote connections.
Usually this is fixed by going into SQL server Surface area configuration manager and allowing remote connections.
This is not available on the server.
Does anyone know how to enable remote connections,or how to configure this or the connection string to use user/password etc. ?
First thing is that the SQL server is not a default instance, it's a named instance called CRSSQL. You would connect to servername\CRSSQL in this case...
Secondly it only accepts Windows authentication. This can be problematic in scenarios where the SQL server is not in a domain.
To authencate to the DB, follow the steps I outline in this post : https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/1211272#1211272
Once you have SQL Enterprise Manager installed it's quite easy to set up, if you don't have it you can google how to do it with osql (the command line SQL admin tool).
