I am installing the BES for Microsoft Exchange on a server running SBS 2003 with SQL Server 2000 SP4. I have followed the instructions in the installion guide and all goes well until it installs the database when having created the database it then falls over with the message "Database connection attempt failed. Refer to the installation log file for mor information." the log file contains the message
[20000] (12/19 17:10:33.551):{0x1590} COM Error 0x80004005 in ConnectionItem::ConnectToDB() - [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (PreLoginHandshake()).]General network error. Check your network documentation. - Unspecified error (connection string - Provider=SQLOLEDB;Server=INFIRMARY;Database=BESMgm t;Trusted_Connection=Yes)

Has anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks in anticipation
