    Make sure you account have required access on SQL, after that if it's still failing the check the logs for more details to identify where is it failing.

  • Hi Meje Mncedi.

    Check the permissions for the account the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard is running under: it must be granted the securityadmin and dbcreator SQL Server fixed roles.
    Verify that the SQL Server can be reached either via PING or TELNET.
    Examine the error log created by the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard: if all the above requirements are met, try executing the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard again.

    Bye.
