    Orion NPM Eval Sql Server 2005 connection

      I installed an configured the Orion NPM eval using the express option which uses the MS 2005 sql database.  In preparation for purchasing NPM SLX and migrating the database I downloaded the instructions for migrating the database and found I could not connect as per the instructions.

      Solution:  go to

      program files\Microsoft SQL Server 2005\Configuration Tools\Sql Server Configuration Manager

      open the Network Configuration Protocols and enable TCP/IP.  Then restart the sql server.

      You should now be able to open the Orion Database Manager, find your sql server, and connect using NT Auth settings.
