Description

In my environment I use a SQL server on a named instance. Is it possible to specify a named instance of Microsoft SQL Server using the SiteMinder SQL Server Wire Protocol?

Solution

To specify a named instance of Microsoft SQL Server, use the format:

server_name\instance_name.

If only a server name is specified with no instance name, the driver uses the default named instance on the server.
