ActiveRecord::ConnectionNotEstablished error

I’ve attached my database.yml
I’ve installed gem install activerecord-sqlserver-adapter

But when I navigate to a simple page I get the
ActiveRecord::ConnectionNotEstablished error

Any ideas what I should be checking?

Ruby 1.92
Rails 3

I’ve never used sqlserver before but I would start with the
development.log file for clues.

Assuming there is a command line client can you connect to the
database with it? Can you ping your db host “mordor”? In dev the
host is usually localhost (in linuxland anyway).

try conecty with irb use ActiveRecord::Base.establish_conection(
hash_here)

the hash for MS SQL server is {:adapter =>“sqlserver”, :mode=> “ado”,
:database=>“db name here”, :host=> “host_here” }

you need to be able to resolve the host from the machine if you use a
name

yep, i can ping it and connect via command line fine. i checked the
development.log and didn’t see anything of interest.
