I use it with SQL Server 2000.  Are you able to connect to the server using just the ADODBAPI library?  Best to build your own connection string for testing and back into the URI from there,
I'd refer to:

http://www.sqlstrings.com/SQL-Server-connection-strings.htm

Common issues include unresolved host names and named SQL server instances.  But without more detail, I'm not sure what your issue is.

Yes, this MSSQL instance is up and running and I can connect to it by other means than Python. I've tried two different MSSQL servers, and I get the same error for each. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Don
