    Tableau Server with local SQL Server Express

    Andrija Sekulic

      Hi -

       

      I'm hosting a SQL Server Express instance on my local computer and I'm trying to publish it to my company's Tableau Server as a datasource with live connection. The publishing seems to work as when I connect to the server through my Tableau Desktop, I'm able to publish the database and it shows up on the Server. However, when I try to test the connection to the datasource, it fails after about 30 seconds. Any ideas as to what the issue might be?

       

      Many thanks!
