  • How connect to SQL server that is resident on a VMware virtual machine

    Hi all,

    I got a WMware virtual machine installed on my dev PC and I preferred to install SQL server express there because I will use it for a while and I don't want to put all that stuff on my PC.
    Now, I want to develop a test project and connect the database to scriptcase.
    Not being so tech guy I've no idea where to start.... ;-))
    Is there someone who can give me some hints to make it possible ?
    Thanks

    Within your (odbc like) driver setup you must apply the correct ip and port for your database. At least this is the way it works for MySQL, and I assume that it's not different to other databases, except that the way the driver is assigned might differ (ie. tns names table for oracle etc.).

      Hi, I know very well how do it in the same dev PC but in this case the SQL express is located in a WMware different virtual machine. It's not reachable in normal way .....

        If you cannot reach the database by using ip/port then you have to look at this issue. Even virtual machines have an ip, can have internet access etc.
