If you haven't taken a look yet, the steps for setting up a vCenter Data Source is actually quite helpful here.  The steps required to use that Data Source are the same required to connect to most MsSQL environments.  If you are creating a new user then you will need to confirm that the user has the appropriate credentials on the database as well as logging into SQL  Look at the 2.0 version of the IAG since it looks like half the steps were removed in the 2.0.1 version.
