Connection issues between BES servers and MSSQL database or pem_admin user authentication issue.


Please check the following:

  1. Verify connection from BES server to MSSQL database server on TCP port 1433.
  2. Try to access MSSQL database using pem_admin account. If it is not accessible, troubleshoot what is the reason - e.g. pem_admin account can be locked out.
