I'm having problems using the transporter tool. When it asks for the source db and I try to get it to connect to the old server, it gives me an error syaing there is a network or instance-related. It says the server is not found or is not accessible. It tells me to verify the instance name (which I put in the "Label" box) is correct and that the SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. I followed the steps here and it still hasn't worked for me. It also does it for the destination db. I don't have any problems connecting to the databases when I'm using SSMS and the firewall is turned off.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thank you for your question regarding the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Transporter tool.
When adding an instance name it goes into the SQL server field. (Ex: SQL/Instance)
The label field is there to simply to determine the source and destination.
Let us know if you have any other questions.

Hey Fozzie, thanks for the reply. I'm confused by your response. Are you saying that I should already have the instances available in the drop down menu in the Transporter tool? I don't have those. My only option is to select the "<new>" option and type in the labels for the databases on each server, new and old. For instance, I have two BB databases, BES and BESX. BES is the old database on the old server that I'm trying to migrate from. When I open the transporter tool and try to select the source db, the label is not there. So I select the "<new>" option provided in the dropdown and proceed to type the label for the source db and "chriserver-2" for my "SQL Server" name. Is there something I'm missing? What should I be typing in the "Label" and "SQL Server" fields?

Just to clarify, this is the way you would want to setup the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter.
Label: Old Server or New server (this name does not matter, it is just a classification name)
SQL Server: SQLServer/instance (this is used for the SQL Server name and the instance we are connecting too)
Authentication: What ever account you are going to use to connect to the SQL Server
I have also added some sceenshots of how it should be setup.

As an additional note, the documentation that Blackberry gives here, leads you to believe that you only have to put the server name, which is why I was putting the instance name in the label box, of which I was not aware was so inconsequential.

I use the server shown in SSMS when using transporter
if you dont use SQL often, it can be a hassle
I had tons of fun migrating a dozen databases with different software packages on a 5 year old SQL server and none of them were the same for SQL naming.
