I am trying to install Workflowmanager on a SQL Server Express. I have a Workgroup SDE running on it. I just cannot figure out which parameters for the DB connection I need to enter In the Post Install.

For the hostname I enter: myagsserver
For the service I entered: myagsserver_sqlexpress (I also tried 1433 for the service)
For the DBName: I used either an existing DB or non existing DB
For the user and password: I used the db admin and password I used when setting up the db 

I always get the error message: "Failed to connect to the specified server. Entry for SDE instance not found in services file"

I also tried to change the Version, but I also got the same error

By the way I can connect to the DB from ArcCatalog and create a Geodatabase in it. So the SDE seems to be set up correctly. 

Can anyone give me an Example please!
