Cannot connect to SQLServer 2008

I can't connect to our SQLServer 2008 database for our new Crucible installation. I get the following error when testing the connection:

The database is not using Unicode. FishEye and Crucible require that the database uses a UTF8 encoding to support internalization.

Some cursory Googling suggests SQLServer 2008 does not support UTF8 - only UTF16?

Please advise

Thanks

Sql Server 2008 supports UTF8 using the nvarchar fields. Did you set your collation to Latin1_General_CS_AS collation?
