I am extremely new to SQL server. I am running the SQL Server 2008 R2 setup wizard and following a tutorial that I found online. Nowhere am I able to configure my instance, even after completing installing and going back to 'New Sql Server or Add Services...'
Having installed this, am I correct to assume that a default instance has been created for me? How do I found out what this is called, so that I can connect to it. Also, how am I able to configure this instance?
I'm sure this is something very obvious, but everything I've found online seems to be something like 'oh just go to the configure instance tab..etc', but I seriously don't see that in the setup that's running and I don't think I'd be able to configure this via the console.
