After reinstalling the MS SQL server on the running Spotfire 7/7 server the below message appears and not able to connect the database.


After re-installing the MS SQL Server, not able to connect the database. (As the evaluation license of previous MS SQL got expired).

While trying to open the bootstap file, getting the following error.

Could not establish contact with the database. The TCP/IP connection to the host BCTVM-SPOT7, port 1433 has failed. Error: 'Connection refused; connect. Verify the connection properties. Make sure that an instance of SQL SErver is running on the host and accepting TCP/IP connections at the port. Make sure that TCP connections to the port are not blocked by a firewall.

Thanks and Regards,
