ST3 Standard Parts Configuration 3: Create a new login (SPUser)

Note: remember the username/password; you need this during the ST3 Standard Parts configuration. The new login is now available for users from other machines in the network. On network machines that will access and modify the database (machines with Standard Parts Administrator installed) use the Standard Parts Configuration Wizard to connect to the External network database using the server machine name and login. On the server machine you may continue to use the localhost or set the database as external using the server machine name and login.

Note: A new login should have DB creation privileges. This is required for the first time the database is being created. 4: Grant database creation privileges to the user switch to Server Roles Pane (second one on the left) Check the checkbox next to dbcreator (image attached below) Click Ok on all dialogs to accept the changes.

Trouble shooting
SQL is communication over port 1433. If you have problems with connecting to the database its in many cases the Windows firewall on the server that is blocking this port. Details for configuring the firewall for SQL can be found here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175043.aspx
