    Make sure that MS SQL server was restarted and you there is no spaces in the "Hostname or IP address" field.

    Its Ok, I came around it, but the problem still persists due to DNS, as I have the site published on another server and where the DNS is protected by microsoftservices. I wanted to test the site on m plesk server before I change the DNS, however that is preventing little admin from connecting to the DB on the plesk server and pointing somewhere else. I tried to create a subdomain and created a cname dns record to point to the subdomain for testing but still it didn't work. So the only option is to create the site into a completely different domain name test, it then migrate it to the right domain and then change the dns records, unless you have another option to overcome this issue. Thanks.
