    Connecting To SQL Database

    Hi,

    We're moving TestPartner from my local machine to a server, but I'm having trouble copying the scripts over. I've made a copy of the TestPartner database and restored it to a database on the server, but can't get TP to connect to the new DB.
    Does anyone know how I can make TP connect to that database? Whenever I try connect to a new DB and select "SQL database" all the options are grayed out.

    Have you managed the access rights properly in the New DB? And are you able to create a DSN from your machine to the New DB?

    Re: Connecting To SQL Database

    I see the first mistake I made is that it was actually an access database. I now copied the DB onto the server opened "database maintenance", then opened the test partner DB and then copied over it with my original DB. The copy completed successfully, but there are still no test scripts when I open Test Partner.

    Re: Connecting To SQL Database

    Why go to the trouble of moving databases? Why not take advantage of tools built into TP?

    Export your test assets from the old DB, build a new DB, and import into the new DB. TP then takes care of all the bookkeeping for you.

    That is also a dandy way to change database types - i.e. from Access (NOT recommended) to SQL.
