I've installed SQL Server 2008 Developer edition x64 on Windows 7 Prof 64. The installation seems to have been successful, but I
cannot connect SQL Server Manager to to instance on the same computer. I use this computer for developement, so SQL Server and
Visual Studio 2008 are (or will be) on the same computer.
When I try to connect to either or SONYSQL08, I receive this error:
TITLE: Connect to Server
Cannot connect to SONYSQL08.
A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 53)
Here are some further details:
Visual Studio 2008 is not installed yet. I am logged on with an admin account (at least I can change the time)
SQL Server Browser is running Windows Authentication SQL Server instance SONYSQL08 is running
Where SONYSQL08 is the name of the SQL Server instance, the command
The command sqlcmd -S SONYSQL08 yields
HResult 0x35, Level 16, State 1 Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server . Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft SQL Server Native Client 10.0 : A network-related or instance-specific error has occurred while
establishing a connection to SQL Server. Server is not found or not accessible. Check if instance name is correct and if SQL
Server is configured to allow remote connections. For more information see SQL Server Books Online.. Sqlcmd: Error: Microsoft SQL Server Native Client 10.0 : Login timeout expired.
The server configuration is:
Name State Start Mode Log On As Process ID Service Type
SQL Server Integration Services 10.0 Running Automatic NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE 2052
SQL Server Analysis Services (SONYSQL08) Running Automatic NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE 2228 Analysis Server SQL Server (SONYSQL08) Running Automatic LocalSystem 2308 SQL Server SQL Full-text Filter Daemon Launcher (SONYSQL08) Running Manual NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE 3828
SQL Server Reporting Services (SONYSQL08) Stopped Manual NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE 0 Report Server SQL Server Agent (SONYSQL08) Stopped Manual LocalSystem 0 SQL Agent SQL Server Browser Running Automatic NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE 2804
Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can get this working?
Could remote connections be the problem when the instance is running on the same computer? If so, how can I enable remote connection when I cannot connect?
