HP SIM 7.2 to Remote SQL Express 2012 SP1 Server



yesterday i tried to perform a new installation of HP SIM 7.2.

When i set the database server it already says: not recommened

But in the specs the server is compatible.


I can go on with the installation but when it tries to populate the database it stops with an error. I've created an user with sysadmin rights on that sql server but no change.


Can anyone help me with this ?


Log error is:

Completed with error.

Details can be found in the log files at: C:\Program Files\HP\Systems Insight Manager\logs
Configuration failed to complete due to the following exception:
    Connection to the repository server failed.

But the check before was fine.
