Issue/Introduction

The customer launched SIM (Symantec Instalaltion Manager) while trying to upgrade to ITMS 8.1 and he sees at the top of it a message saying:

"The SQL server, configured during installation, not accessible. Symantec Installation Manager functionality is limited"

which causes SIM not to allow the customer upgrade or install. However, when the customer checks his Console he is able to connect just fine to his SQL server.

"The SQL server, configured during installation, not accessible. Symantec Installation Manager functionality is limited"

Cause

It was necessary to add the FQDN information for the SQL Server in order to connect via SIM.

Environment

Upgrade to ITMS 8.1
SIM 8.1.4504

Resolution

Update the following registry key 'SqlServerName' under HKLM>Software>Altiris>AIM>Configuration>NsConfiguration.

In this particular case the SQL server name was SQL-W2K12R2-01 and we had to add SQL-W2K12R2-01.MyDomain.com
