Primavera P6 Professional Project Management - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to export to XML format (or any format that utilizes INTERNAL_PLUGINS), the export fails and the following errors are found in the log generated:


com.primavera.PhoenixException: Unable to resolve privileged username and password
The TCP/IP connection to the host <host>, port 1433 has failed. Error: "Connection refused: connect. Verify the connection properties, check that an instance of SQL Server is running on the host and accepting TCP/IP connections at the port, and that no firewall is blocking TCP connections to the port.".
