Server installation went surprisingly smooth. I am able to launch the management suite from the server no problem. I've ran the UDD and picked up machines on my network and have deployed agents to a select few with minimal problems. However, after installing the Management Suite on my workstation, it is having trouble logging into the DB on my core.
It looks as though it gets passed the authentication piece, but when connecting to the DB it stalls and throws an error.
[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.
Invalid connection string attribute
Initial findings on this error say to add the port (default in this case) to a reg key on the CORE. I applied this fix and it did not help.
