When you open Transaction Integrator (TI) Manager in Microsoft Host Integration Server 2004, you may receive the following error message:
An error has occurred in CHipTree::SetNamespaceNode

(5006) Could not Connect to Data Source Provider=SQLOLEDB;Server=ServerName;Database=MSHIS60_HIP;Integrated Security=SSPI. [DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.. Please ensure that the SQL Server specified in the Data Source is running. If you have not done so yet, please run the Configuration Wizard.
When you click OK, you receive the following error message:
Snap-in failed to initialize.
Note When TI Manager opens, you cannot configure any TI objects.
This behavior occurs when Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or Microsoft SQL Desktop Edition (MSDE) is not installed.
To resolve this behavior, install SQL Server 2000 or MSDE.
In Host Integration Server 2004, TI Manager checks for SQL Server configuration and connectivity. Even though only the host-initiated processing (HIP) feature and its components require SQL Server (or MSDE), TI Manager does not differentiate between a Windows-initiated process (WIP) and a host-initiated process (HIP).

TI Manager can use a local or remote SQL Server database. When you use MSDE, you must install MSDE locally on the same server as TI Manager.
