Posted: 3 years agoAkshaySinha PEGA replied to YukihitoGive URL as " jdbc:sqlserver://XXXXXX:1433;databaseName=RPA_Training" instead of jdbc:sqlserver://XXX.XX.X.XXX\SQLEXPRESS:1433;databaseName=RPA_Training. I believe there is no need to specify SQLEXPRESS. I tried with the above URL and i am able to connect to the database.

Develop emviroment is: PC A where the SQL Server instance is, PC B which is the host of the virtual machine where Pega 7 is running. Posted: 3 years agoNickLoving_GCS PEGA replied to YukihitoI think this is likely a virtualbox configuration issue. Can you ping or telnet to the server that hosts the sql server instance from the virtualbox instance?

Could you please show me which options do I have? For example... can I open firewall path for this connection?
