Cognos Planning 10.1 installation issue

Post by Radhika » Thu Jul 05, 2012 4:15 am

Hello All,
I am installing IBM Cognos Planning v10.1 on Windows 7 with IIS 7 & Microsoft SQL Express 2005 SP4. Installation sequence is as folows
Database
Admin
Server
Client
Web configuration
Though I created a database successfully, I am facing problems during configuration. I created content store and planning store (localhost\instance name), while testing the planning store I get the below error message

[ ERROR ] Connection test to 'localhost\CSCINDAE680759' failed.
80004005: Unable to open connection using connection string of Provider=SQLNCLI;Data Source=localhost\CSCINDAE680759;UID=ASIAPAC\krandhi;PWD=********* and timeout of 15 seconds.

SQL Network Interfaces: Error Locating Server/Instance Specified [xFFFFFFFF].
[ ERROR ] Cognos Configuration is unable to access the Planning Store. Verify your database connection parameters, and then contact your database administrator for assistance.


Please help me.

Thank You,
Goutham

Have you used one database for Content store and planning store?

Is your planning store has been created with Bufferpool 32 and Tablespaces with it?
