Create a completely configured instance.
Using the product and the guides I am setting the value for the JDBC pools to point to a version of SQL Server running on my laptop running Windows 11 (SQL version 2019.0150.2000.05). The Named pipes and TCIP/IP have been configured and enabled.
However the IS as well as the DB Database Configuration tool will only connect to the database when i use the following URL
jdbc:wm:sqlserver://JK\SQLExpress;databaseName=WMDB → where SQLExpress is the instance name
and not using the suggested value of
It returns an error unable to connect as follows
Test of MWS failed [SoftwareAG][SQLServer JDBC Driver]Error establishing socket to host and port: JK:1433. Reason: Connection refused: connect

Appreciate any insight from this group
