Unable to get SQL connection.

SmsAdminUI_log - Unable to get SQL connection

Solution: During your installation you may have tried to change the default SSL certificate on the database.  Based on what documentation I could find, by design, System Center requires you use the default SSL certificate that gets autogenerated during the installation process.  In this case, you need to ensure you have a seperate SQL Server instance dedicated solely to the System Center installation and can use the dedicated system center SSL certificate.

Notes: If you receive errors like  like [SQL Server Native Client 10.0] SSL provider: The target principle is incorrect or  [SQL Server Native Client 10.0] Client unable to establish connection. you might need to install the Server 2008 Native SQL Client (which can be obtained from here).
