I am trying to connect from desktop to SQL Server 2012 (on a different server) and getting the following error:
Connection Timeout Expired. The timeout period elapsed during the post-login phase. The connection could have timed out while waiting for server to complete the login process and respond; Or it could have timed out while attempting to create multiple active connections. The duration spent while attempting to connect to this server was - [Pre-Login] initialization=190; handshake=4; [Login] initialization=0; authentication=102; [Post-Login] complete=14002; (Microsoft SQL Server)
The client is SQL Server Management Studio 2012. Firewall on the server is turned off. I can telnet to port 1433. And connecting from Studio on the server itself works fine. Desktop and Server are on the same segment; using Windows authentication.
Both Windows Server 2008R2 and SQL Server are just built from scratch.
What puzzles me is that post-login phase. I have a feeling that I am looking in the wrong place (that is, network connectivity); but don't know what the right place would be...
