Cannot connect to database server

Nov 3, 2009 at 3:33 PM


I am trying to install the feature, but it fails right away with the "SharePoint was unable to contact your database server". I am running this on a farm where the BackEnd, FrontEnd and Database are 3 different servers - can that be causing any issues?

Thanks in advance,
