SQL Server database connection

I’m using the DatabaseLibrary library to connect to a SQL Server database.
However, my host address has a forward slash (/) in its address.

When trying to use the following host:\sql2014, when robot tries to make the connection, the following log is returned:
OperationalError: (2003, “Can’t connect to MySQL server on ‘’ ([Errno 11001] getaddrinfo failed)”)

If you change the host variable to:\sql2014 another error is returned:
OperationalError: (2003, “Unable to connect to MySQL server at ‘\\sql2014’ ([Errno 11001] getaddrinfo failed)”)

Can you help me to solve this problem?

You mention foward slash but all the examples you show are with backslash and you even have it correctly doubled in your test script.
