  1. From your DBA, obtain details of the port on which SQL Server named instance listens in the following format:
    SERVER\INSTANCE_NAME,PORT
  2. Log in to the Orion server.
  3. Run the Orion Configuration Wizard.
  4. On the first screen select Database and click Next.
    Orion Configuration Wizard Database Option Selected
     
  5. Enter details from Step 1 into SQL Server field.
    Orion Configuration Wizard SQL Server Named Instance with Port
     
  6. Complete the wizard.

 

Note: If installation contains multiple Orion Servers, repeat the steps for each server.
