Topic: Recorder 6 - Networked installation problem - What, Why & How??
We are currently bringing the LERC back in house after many years and our IT section is attempting a networked installation onto our server.
I am being told (sorry, I'm only the messenger at this stage) that, when they put in the SQL Instance nothing happens (ie they cannot click ‘next’) thus the installation cannot be progressed.
Does anyone have any idea/advice regarding what might be happening and why and how to overcome it please?
EDIT: Further information & relevant questions follow:
When we start the install we get to the datadase server selection screen (see attachment) to enter the name of the SQL Server with the Recorder6 Database on, we enter the SQL Server instance name (we have tried instance name and server name\instance name), click ‘Next’ and nothing happens, no errors, no messages.
So a couple of questions :
Does Recorder6 Server Installation have to be on the same server as the database is on
Does Recorder6 always use the Microsoft Access MDB file and connect to SQL Server via linked tables (via ODBC)
