i am trying to open a connection to my database using:
As New SqlConnection _
("server=\localhost\eagle;database=database ;user id=user;password=password")
this is the exception i am getting:
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: sql network interfaces, error:25 – connection string is not valid)
how can i (if possible) get the sql server (i am using 2008) to show me the connection string ?
