SQL 2005 problems with 7.5.5 update

Discussion in 'Plesk for Windows - 8.x and Older' started by Redah, Nov 18, 2005.

    We recently migrated to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, and were glad to see that it worked like a charm in Plesk 7.5.4.

    Plesk recognised it as SQL Server 9.0, and when entering the sa password in the 'Server' > 'Databases' page, a connection was made.

    We then upgraded to Plesk 7.5.5 this night, and we found out that Plesk fails to connect to SQL Server 2005 with the following error:

    "Unable to update database parameters: Try to establish connection failed: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied."

    The password has definately not changed, how can this be?

    1. Host
    2. Login (sa)

    The only way to fix this is to uninstall SQL Server 2005, and then re-install it. Ofcourse I had already entered the sa login and password, if I hadn't, it wouldn't have worked under 7.5.4 either :)

    After re-installing, Plesk will work fine with it. Somehow it messes something up with the dll files SQL Server uses... only way to get them back is to re-install SQL Server 2005.
