OpsMgr 2007 Reporting does not support a SQL SRS Instance name with an underscore character in it

InformationHere's a quick note on an issue I saw recently.  When you are trying to install Reporting for System Center Operations Manager 2007 (SCOM 2007), the installation wizard may hang after you select the SQL SRS Instance and click the Next button if the SQL SRS Instance name has an underscore ( _ ) character in the name.  You will probably also see entries like those below in the setup log:

The underscore character is not supported so if you run into this your only recourse is to uninstall the SQL SRS installation and reinstall SQL SRS using an instance name without an underscore character in it.

Hope this helps,

  • I am having an issue in installing SCOM R2.

    error:  Setup cannot locate the SC Database

    I have 3 servers

    1 DC (Domain Controller, Win 2008 Ent x64)

    1 DB (Database with SQL 2008 SP2, Win 2008 Ent x86)

    1 SCOM (Win 2008 Ent x64)

    I have opened port 1433 on DB, I have checked the TCP/IP and named Pipes settings on SQL, Every thing is in order, But still i am getting this error again and again.

    Please help me out in this regard.
