I just added msSQL 2014 to a new computer running Windows 7 and CF 11

I opened the port 1434 and when I tried to connect the datasource in CF Admin got this message...

Connection verification failed for data source: mydb1

java.sql.SQLException: [Macromedia][SQLServer JDBC Driver]The connection to the host {0}, named instance {1} has failed. Error: "{2}". Verify the server and instance names, check that no firewall is blocking UDP traffic to port 1434, and for SQL Server 2005 or later verify that the SQL Server Browser Service is running on the host.

Hi BKBK,

After much frustration called a tech I knew yesterday.

I had opened the port already and everything I could think of and find on Google search.

What it turned out was the msSQL server had decided on it's own name and password and I didn't know that nor how to detect it.

He connected to my desktop, found server name and created a new password.

Perfect.

Tnx,
