It’s been brought to my attention that there two typos in my SRM 4.0 book surrounding the Microsoft SQL Configuration.
On page 151 on step 8, I incorrectly state you should select “Windows Authentication” when it should read “SQL Authentication”. It pretty obvious typo as in the book I’d spent a couple of pages explaining the authentication methods available and what VMware supports.
On the same page (151), the screen grab of the System DSN dialog box should not have “corp\srm4dbuser-nyc” in it, it should just read srm4nydb.
The typos was created by me using “Windows Authentication” in SQL in an unsupported configuration during writing the first draft. I was experimenting with whether such an unsupport configuration would work. Unfortunately, when I switched to SQL Authentication I neglected to update the text and graphic.
Sorry about that.
