After installing ArcGIS Server SDS 10.1 I tried creating a datasource by using http://<server>/arcgissds/admin/datasources/createDatasource and filled in the fields with the appropriate data and get an error message:
  "error" :
    "code" : 400,
    "message" : "",
    "details" : [
      "Unable to connect to datasource."

Connecting to a different server with SQL Server 2008 r2.

ANY help would be MUCH appreciated!!
