Azure Development Fabric with SqlSrever not Express Edition

Posted: May 11, 2010 in Uncategorized

This is a quick tip which I found useful to get your development fabric running on SqlServer and not SqlExpress.By default Azure takes the Express Edition and if you want your sqlserver to be non-express you need to provide a “.” and not the SqlServer Instance name and the username should be domain/username and pass it to DsInit.exe .

Not sure [have not digged into] from which config does the Azure tools pickup these values but this can save your significant time ,if you have not seen this before.
