comment cannot connect to sql server express from sql server standard
Thanks Darin... it turns out, the express computer was not in the same network as the standard... and that is why I cannot ping it either by using hostname or IP address. Also SSMS can't obviously connect to that instance since it's totally out of network... thanks for saving my time as I would have been still banging my head over this...

comment cannot connect to sql server express from sql server standard
Thanks for your answer Darin... I have made sure that all the TCP protocol are enabled on both the vms... however "SQL Server Agent (SQLEXPRESS)" is in 'stopped' state... does that make any difference.

Hey Darin..yes, 2008 express is installed as a default instance as "SQLEXPRESS"... I am trying to create another instance "MSSQLSERVER" for SSRS from SQL Server 2008 R2
