Cannot connect to MS SQL Server

Cannot connect to MS SQL Server

I am trying to connect to a local MS SQL Server DB.

 

I am getting the error at the bottom of the post when I try to "test connection".

 

I installed the mssql-jdbc.jar successfully after reading other posts on this forum, but I am stuck here.

 

Can anyone help?

 

 

Connection failure. You must change the Database Settings.

Re: Cannot connect to MS SQL Server

Hello,

Have you tried to restart your studio to see if it works?

Best regards

Yes, still did not work. I restarted SSMS and Talend.
