KBI 220720 localhost For SQL Server Name May Cause Client GUI Issues


Argent Console 8.0A-0701 and below


16 July 2007


When “localhost” is used for the SQL Server Name while installing the Argent XT Products, the Client GUI’s do not install and cause issues during the install process.

The full server name should be used instead.

Technical Background

“Access Denied” or “Connectivity” errors will appear during the installation of a Client GUI when “localhost” is used in the SQL Server Name for the Argent XT install.


Use the full Server Name and NOT “localhost” for all installations when specifying the Backend SQL Server’s details.
