Two days ago an MS update for MSO OL sp2 for BCM wanted to be installed so I

left it get installed. After the installation I noticed that my data

connection to the BCM database was broken.

I am using MSSQLSERVER instance name for SQL Server Developer Edition

instead of MSSQL instance name which is for SQLEXPRESS. I have been usine SQL

Server Developer edition with BCM for quite awhile without any problem but

now after sp2 was installed I cannot connect to the database as it cannot

find it.

I ran the database Admin tool to share it and everything ran successfully

with a pretty instruction page that opened in IE to walk one through

connecting to the database in OL. The initial connection failed when I

selected the connect to an existing databse as it wanted to connect to the

default SQLEXPRESS instance, then I typed in the computer name

localhost\MSSQLSERVER,1433 and it cannot find the database to connect.

Has anyone else had this ridiculous issue and how can I solve it?

Thanks,

MaitreMind

By default, BCM creates and uses a sql instance named MSSMLBIZ, and

not the default instances. If Sql is installed by BCM Setup, it

doesn't even create the default instances.

Also the port number has to be 5356
