The SQL create script works for Express but we do not support configuring SQL Express.
There are a few things you have to check\enable if you are facing database connectivity issues;
- Validate server name. Mayby it’s “pc-name\server” or “server\SQLEXPRESS”.
- Enable protocol tcp\ip.
- Enable sqlbrowser.
- Make sure that sqlbrowser is running under services.
- sql browser has to be forwarded in the firewall.
- Enable sqlserv.exe instance in the firewall.
