i installed ArcSDE 10 Enterprise and sql server express 2008 R2 on my laptop.i have installed ArcSDE post installation and after installing successfully , i got details shown below
Service - esri_sde
port no. 5151/tcp
sde username - sa
sde password - 1026
database name - road
instance name : PC-EHSAN
i want to make a ArcSDE geodatabase but when i want to "add database server" , i encounter with below error :
"Cannot Connect to Database Server Failed to connect to Database Server "
so i checked and enabled the following issues:
SQL Server instance is allowed remote connections.
SQL Server Browser Service is enabled.
TCP/IP in SQL Server Configuration Manager is enabled.
ArcSDE service (esri_sde) is enabled.
firewall is configured to allow sql server access (with 1433 tcp port).
But still i encounter with mentioned error...what should i do ? please help me...
i saw in esri website that " the Windows domain account should be added into the SQL Server instance" .i do not know how can i do it ?and also is it necessary?because i installed all the software on my laptop...
