PAM is unable to manage MSSQL Accounts

CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM)


PAM Admin was trying onboard new MSSQL instances into PAM. But when we try to onboard account with initial password it is failing with an error.

Error: PAM-CM-0758 : Failed to synchronize password with target.


Release : 4.0.x, 4.1.x



Inside the Tomcat logs, they were getting the error message:

"Connection refused (Connection refused). Verify the connection properties. Make sure that an instance of SQL Server is running on the host and accepting TCP/IP connections at the port. Make sure that TCP connections to the port are not blocked by a firewall.".

Ultimately SQL was using dynamic ports and unfortunately our PAM SQL Target Application needs a static one.
