comment ArcObjects SQL Server Connection not recognizing instance
Ha! You're beautiful! It worked. I've run into not understanding database connection strings before. "What info goes where?" Do you have a recomendation on where to go to brush up on this? Many thanks!

comment ArcObjects SQL Server Connection not recognizing instance
I added another method I tried. I think this is the syntax suggested in the ArcObjects API Reference for 10.1, resources.arcgis.com/en/help/arcobjects-net/componenthelp/…

comment Create an ArcCatalog OLE DB Connection using Python
I have 10.1 and I have tried this. It turns out that Query Tables and Query Layers can't be built from an sde file connection (which CreateDatabaseConnection_management creates). It's the wrong workspace type. It must be an OLE DB connection which Esri doesn't expose with Python. It can be done from ArcCatalog 10.1 though. You have to search the customize mode commands for "OLE DB", add it to your menus, and then you can create a new OLE DB connection with the User Interface. This isn't available through ArcDesktop though. Once the connection is there, then Python can use it.

Great, that did it. I've updated my answer with the equivalent Python code.
