What does the JIRA application log file say the problem is?  Atlassian-jira.log in the <JIRA home>/log directory

What version of JIRA are you using?  You may be using a JIRA version that no longer supports SQL Server 2008 R2.  Was this working at one point, or is this a new setup?

Here is piece of log file Atlassian-jira.log when JIRA tryung to start

I think problem in this piece of log (but i dont understand what is that about):

You are using an unsupported mssql collation: Cyrillic_General_CI_AS. This may cause some functionality to not work.
Please use SQL_Latin1_General_CI_AI or SQL_Latin1_General_CP437_CI_AI as the collation instead.

Um, that chunk of log doesn't mention the collation at all.

But, it is a valid warning.  Collation is a setting about how a database compares characters in data.  You don't need to worry too much about the precise reasons why this might be a problem, but you do need to switch to a database with supported settings.

But how looks like that supported settings? Database in MS SQL was created automatically, and JIRA can see connection if I click "Test connection", but when I Start Jira, it tell that something wrong. I was try install jTDS driver but dont find easy documentation for someone who does not know Java.I think that jTDS can resolve this problem. I look a lot web site but cant find the answer ((

No, it's not that, although I do understand why you thought that might be it, and your idea is good.

The database for MS-SQL was not created automatically.  Your database administrator had to set up an empty one, with a user who has full access to it.  JIRA then used that user to create all the base data it needed.  But, collation is a setting done at the database creation time, not initial population.  The database has been created with a collation that does not work for JIRA - you'll need to convert it to a collation type that works, or start with a new empty one that has the correct collation set at the time your admin creates it.

Oh, thank you I think I start understand what to do next..

The database for MS-SQL was not created automatically - yes , When I make database in MS SQL I was following the instructions on the site documentation for JIRA. but probably i miss some important detail.. Dont remember anything about collation. can you please tell what collation  I will need to set when I will try make new database for jira? what collation is right for jira?

Thank you very much. I will try following this instruction.
