"sql auth" instead "Windows auth" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,


           for a customer i try to install OCS r2 Ent in this example situation :


    DC and FrontEnd :  domain.com


    SQL 2005 SP1 :      domain2.com


    During installation I try to connect to sql instance with no success... it give me a instance error


    My question is : Can I use "sql auth" instead "Windows auth" during Enterprise installation ?


    Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    Unfortunately you cannot configure OCS to connect via SQL auth. Are the two domains in the same forest? If so, then make sure you are running the installation with a user with domain admin rights in both domains. If not, you will need to consider creating a trust between the 2 forests or use a SQL server in the same domain as the Front End.

    Best Regards,
