Connecting JIRA to SQLServer


Following the set-up wizard I have an issue where I cannot connect to the SQL database. I get the following error:

Error connecting to database

Login failed for user 'domianX\usernameY'

If I run SQL Server Management Studio I can log into the database not problems using the same credentials. I have read that the issue maybe related to the fact I have the domain included in the username as in 'domainX\usernameY', the domain is needed in order to connect. Is there an alternate syntax for the username or any other workaround?

I case anyone is wondering, I removed the domain from the user name and changed the server string to the format: <server>:<port>/<database>;domain=X

Hi Darren, I believe this KB will help you.
