I've searched for similar threads but nothing seems to solve my problem. I have built a few test VMs with UIM 8.x before on Windows Server 2008R2/2012 and Microsoft SQL (various versions) with no problem.
I am trying to build one to verify install steps for a single primary hub with local SQL and I keep getting problems when it comes to the data_engine probe config with nametoip failures. This is a standalone server for this test with firewalls and UAC off. No anti-virus. I have another VM that installed fine but I wanted to repeat steps to verify them. There is no DNS as this is a test VM on my laptop but that's no different to the working VM.
I have a named instance on port 1433 (not default instance) for the database and the initial connection works. There must be something I've overlooked but can't spot it.
Can anyone suggest something I've missed.?
