I have the "guide" aka walk through on install. I did not run the cfg files. I installed SQL express 2008 w/ tools (studio management). This also failed when BES 10 tried to install its own sql express version.
The BES service account is local admin, also a sysadmin in sql. Using static port 1433 w/ windows authentication.
Error during BDS sql install is, an attempt to connect the database was unsuccessful. for more info check logs. Well the logs don't say much for this specific error unless I'm looking in the completely wrong spot.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I had a similar issue and solved it by enabling port 1433 in the SQL Server Settings.
In our environment we are using SQL Express on the BES 10 Server
All Programs->Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2->Configuration Tools->SQL Server Configuration Manager
SQL Server Network Configuration
Set Named Pipes and TCP/IP to enabled and in the TCP/IP settings in the Tab IP Addresses add 1433 in the TCP Port Field.
Restart the SQL service afterwards. And try your installation again.
Hope this helps
