    unable to install VC 5.5 with external DB

    lvaibhavt Hot Shot

      Hi All,


      I am trying to install VC with external DB and it fails with error snapshot attached


      I have tried installing with external SQL 2005 and with SQL 2008 but no go.


      I did few articles online but no go.


      I am trying to do this on my home lab in vmware workstation. I have my AD installed as home.local I log in as home.local\administrator and then I am trying the VC installation.


      The ODBC connection from the VC Server to the DB server passes the connection.


      this is what I am getting in the vpxd log file. Any suggestions please
