Post by rjwelte » Sun Jan 07, 2007 1:20 am

Cannot Connect to the MSSQL Server 2000 Instance using the Microsoft JDBC Driver.

Error: java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][SQLServer 2000 Driver for JDBC]The requested instance is either invalid or not running.
Location: MySQL2000

The instance is running, but it appears Oxygen can't see it.

Please help me make a connection. thankyou.
