Failing to install "SAP Web Application Server Java 6.40 SP7"

Former Member

I am completely new to SAP and am trying to install the "Sneak Preview SAP Enterprise Portal 6.0"

I am running Windows 2000 Server

have put on SQL Server 2000 SP3 and the hotfixes from the Install "How To" but when I try and install the Web AS it fails

The only thing that I do differently is that the

"OS User Passwords" are "admin1" since or system has 6 letter minimum

The error Message (below) appears on the "Database Connection Information" screen

SQL Server is installed, is running and the user has full admin permission on the machine

I haven't used SQL Server much so this may be something really obvious

I have no idea what might be wrong

Can anyone help me?


myName@machineName: Input Error

Unable to connect to host machineName

Errors returned from server:

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Shared Memory]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][Shared Memory]SQL ConnectionOpen (Connect()).

This seems to have been something stupid.

I tried again (time number 6 or 7) and it worked

I think I entered admin as the Guest password and that caused it to fail!
