Hello Team,

I was looking out for KA regarding , installing the YellowFin with MSSQL named instance rather than default instance. I found the below query :

https://www.yellowfinbi.com/resources/forum/yfforum-install-repository-database-to-named-instance-of-ms-sql-server-thread-150015

I see in the port you mentioned that, in next releases you will be providing the option for the users to put the instance name instead of users figuring out the Port for the named instance and providing that during installation . Could you please help to locate , whether this is fixed in 7.1 or 7.3 any specific build or so , or this has not be taken care or likewise

Regards

Sachin

Hi Sachin,

Thanks for your post.

As I know, this haven't been implemented yet. You still need to mention the port number.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Mahe,

I have client who is using the Named instance for installation and they claims that , they need not to invest time on figuring out the port as the named instance ports are dynamic and they might not be aware of it. So they prefer to use the name of the instance instead of port. Is there are plan to get this option enabled in future builds ?

Hi Sachin,

Sorry, I did not update you earlier.

I have discussed with head developer and he said, he needs to investigate on this further and then only he can say whether this can be implemented or not.

I will update you as soon as I hear development on this enhancement.

Mahe
