Content Manager 5

Setting up Advanced Configuration Database options for MS SQL Server 2005

By June 24, 2011 No Comments

If you are configuring the database connection in Content Manager to connect to a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 database, and it’s on a domain and/or you have a specific instance you want to use, you’ll need to modify the “Connection Options” field as shown below:

 If your database is on a domain, then add this:


Where yourdomain is the name of the domain.

If your database has a specific instance you want to use, then add this:


Where myinstance is the name of the instance you want to use.

If you want to use these options together, then you would use:

domain=yourdomain, instance=myinstance
