I am trying to register an sde database that I have stored on the same machine arcgis sever 10.1 is installed on. I am running 64 bit sql server express. This is the error I get:

Machine: XXXX [database: The connection property set was missing a required property or the property value was unrecognized. Bad login user]

I am trying to add the database using operating system authentication.

can anyone help? thanks!
