I installed the Sql Server Management Studio 2008 and made a connection but last week when i tried to connect got the error below............
A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider:
Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server) (.Net SqlClient Data Provider)
I haven't changed anything. I was also unsuccessful in starting the sql agent in sql configuration. Thanks,
