I'm sure somebody has a SQL Server connection with an instance name connected to PA control ?
it's not possible to enter the backslash "\" in datasource host:port

so did/does anyone have any solution or workarounds to get the connection going?

Thanks!

Thanks kangkc, the link provided some clues and it appears in this case, the instance name could be a red herring. After some testing, connectivity problem starts with windows server 2003 running sql server 2005. Hopefully my support ticket with ibm may yield some answers...

Well it turns out, that win svr 2003 sp2 running sql 2005 will work with a hotfix:-
