Can it evaluate a named instance?

Nov 7, 2014 at 11:47 AM

We are running this across a firewall with static ports all configured and allowed, but the evaluation is still failing for any servers where we have a named instance such as e.g. by the name of SERVER1\SRVA

Any ideas? I'm just about to try registernig our servers in the CMS as SERVER1,12345 and will report back

I've worked around this by creating a SQL alias on the source server so the server name in the CMS list still appears with a '\' but the alias is pointing at servername,12345

Is this an issue that has developed with the latest 4.0 version? Almost all of our 100+ instances are named instances and have no problems under the EPM 3.0 version.

Can you please provide more detail? I have had no issues with named instances, even on very large environments. While you're at it, I just release v4.1, so please update the PS script and the data loading SP, and test again.
