Yep, dip question on initial setup SQL configuration but I give up.


I'm trying to install and configure the "free" 5 user license for evaluation. I don't really have a clue here but I've tried to follow the instructions and I'm now stuck.

I have SQL Server 2005/Enterprise Edition installed on a machine.

I crated a database of my own name (not the default Gemini)

I ran setup.  When I got to the db config information I got a connection OK dialog after changing the information to use

instead of
servername\MSSQL1 which should have been the instance ID I thought but what do I know.

Install completed normaly.

Now, trying to connect to the admin page I get a Login Failed message and I can't for the life of me figure out what is up.  I checked the web.config file and the information placed there by setup looks "right" to me.

I'm obviously missing something very, very, simple here so would appreciate a pointer.

It seems that you have setup Gemini to use windows authentication to connect to SQL. If you have a user name and password login for sql then please update the connection strings in the web.config file.

Otherwise you will have to allow access via SQL to the network service.
