Following the instructions in the deployment guid (Select Offline Migration option in Migration Utility. “Skip configuration file” should be enabled.) I get the error in the screenshot below. I can verify that the tables in the configuration database were created at installation of the software. I selected use MSSQL as the backend type and populated the setting during the install wizard.
Not able to connect to backend database. Reason: The TCP/IP connection to the hose:, port 1433 has failed. Error"null. Verify the connection properties, check that an instance of SQL server is running on the host and accepting TCP/IP connections at the port, and that no firewall is blocking TCP connections to the port.".
The migration utility is not being executed with proper permissions
Run the migration utility as an administrator
