I have successfully configured Windows Server 2008 Enterprise SP2 with SQL Server 2008 Enterprise SP2 all 64 bit, however when I tried to access this particular SQL Server 2008 DB instance from another SQL Server 2008 SSMS in another Windows Server 2008 it failed ?
what I did is to disabled the IPv6 IP address using the regedit but still the problem hasn't been fixed even after restart ?
I have enabled the named piped as well but still no luck ?
any help please ?
Here's the error message: "

Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections.
