Description

While installing SharePoint 2013 with SQL Server 2014 noticed following issue with creating content databases. Looking at the details this seems like a loopback address issue. Any resolution on this topic would be helpful with RDP customer.


10/02/2013 20:30:45  9  ERR                    Exception: System.ArgumentException: vmtmebispsql01,3180 is an invalid or loopback address.  Specify a valid server address.

The configuration does create the main content database and other tables within it, but then fails.  So I know it’s able to see the server and the user logs in and has the right level of access to create the database, etc.

Can you try connecting to sql instance "vmtmebispsql01,3180 " using SSMS / sqlcmd?

Thanks
