Received a comment about problems when installing K2.NET Black Pearl.
I’d had the exact same problem when setting up my VPC. The issue is – that when attempting to configure the SQL Server databases, a SQL Server authentication error is displayed.
I couldn’t work out what was wrong, as the rest of the installation had been fairly easy (just click Next>, Next>, Next>).
So, I checked the event viewer – and found the following error message :
It looks like there is a user login required within SQL Server – and it’s not automatically created during installation.
Solution : create a new user login called “K2SQL”
Looks like they forgot a step from the installation guide – I’ve logged this as an issue within the Beta site.
I initially tried to create the user account using “Windows authentication” – but that didn’t work. So – had to try and figure out what the password was needing to be… *hhmmm*
Well – the K2.NET “server” needs to know the login and password – so went to check the “config” file :
And so – there’s the password also.
Solution : create a new user login : K2SQL password : k2pass
