I'm having some trouble with the SQLSERVER PSDRIVE. See error below.
I only have named instances on my PC, both 2005 and 2008
Added the SQL snapins.
The PC is named YODA The SQL instance is SQL2008 Navigate to the Databases folder for YODA\SQL2008. You can see the path below. dir -name spits out a connection error trying to connect to YODASQL2008\DEFAULT when it should be trying to connect to YODA\SQL2008. Then it outputs the db name which is Twitter in this case. Is there something missing from my config?
PS SQLSERVER:\SQL\YODA\SQL2008\Databases> dir -name
Get-ChildItem : SQL Server PowerShell provider error: Could not connect to 'YODASQL2008\DEFAULT'. [Failed to connect to server YODASQL2008. --> A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible.
