I set up Vibe 3.4 on a virtual Windows Server 2008 R2. I'm using SQL Server 2008 R2 Express on the same virtual machine. I set up the SQL Database using the create script that was included with the installation download creating the "sitescape" database on the SQL Server.

During the installation of Vibe I put in the following JDBC URL:

jdbc:jtds:sqlserver://localhost\VIBE_1:1433/sitescape;SelectMethod=cursor

The install wizard accepted this input without any complaint.

When I start Tomcat with the startup.bat I get the following errors in the output and in the logs:

Error message in the output:
org.apache.tomcat.dbcp.dbcp.SQLNestedException: Cannot create PoolableConnectionFactory (Unknown server host name 'localhost\VIBE_1'.)

The following are the entries to the log after the startup:

I've re-run the install wizard and used 127.0.0.1 instead of localhost as well as the FDQN of the server in the JDBC URL. I've also an entry to the hosts file on the server. Neither have effected the error message and output.

I have very little experience with both SQL and Tomcat (practically none ). So any help would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you need additional information.
