I am trying to start up on a SQL 2014 but I get these messages from the database setup window
Please wait while updating database settings...
Settings updated.
Restarting server...
Database version could not be detected.
How do I get it to set up the database?

I found that SQL 2014 is not supported, but 2008 should be, I got the same messages on 2008 R2 SP2!
Is this not supported?

Hi Jens

Im afraid I cannot help you much with the complexity of why you get this error, hopefully Martin or someone will be able to cover this for you if and when they read your post. However, I do want to tell you that I am running Windows 2008 R2 quite happily (albeit with MySQL). Im sure the problem is solvable for you - you just need someone with the answer to be reading.

It sounds like you're not using the database setup properly. It sounds like you ran the wizard and selected "Select a new hMailServer default database" rather than "Create a new hMailServer database". Could that be the issue?

I have to upgrade SQL Server 2008 installation due to an application upgrade that not support it anymore.
I don't want to install a new istance, so i tried if hmail support it first.
I installed SQL 2014 Standard on a windows server 2012 virtual machine.
I selected create new db --> msssql --> IP tried and the normal lan ip
Authentication i tried both (windows and sql).
Here the result

Code: Select all

Starting task...
Please wait while creating database...
ADO: [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied
From SQl Server managment studio I connect normally.
SQL server version is 12.0.4100.1

What can be?

Sorry fo my english, i'm italian

Thank you

note that the hmail install creates the DB schema. You must NOT create it yourself before the install.

if you have a failed hms install but the DB schema has been created then you must uninstall hmailserver, delete the hmailserver install directory AND manually drop the db schema which the hmail install has created and then try again.
