SQl Server Express 2008 connecting to instance issue

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

Hi all,

First time user here.

Need some advice on connecting to a database or instance. Keep getting error message when i try to connect to instance.

Error message when I try to connect to instance refers to veryfying that the instance name is correct and to also check that remote connections are enabled.

I just cant connect at all.

I have enabled TCP/IP in config manager tool for sql server.

I am trying to do this locally.

TCP/IP and shared name pipes is enabled.

How do I verify that the instance name is correct?

And one silly question I think, why dont I have sql browser service in Services?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Problem connecting to SQL Server 2008 R2 Express from Access 2007

  
I have a problem with SQL Server 2008 R2 Express with MS Access 2007. I am running Windows 7 with 8 gigs memory. I installed SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. Do I now need to install SP1 because I am running with Windows 7? I can open SQL Server using the Management Screen but I cannot connect to MS Access 2007 using SQL Server Express as the database. When trying to connect to SQL Server from Access 2007, I keep getting the message that SQL Server 2005 cannot be found. It will not allow me to sign onto sql server 2008 stating that it cannot be found. Do I have to now run the SQL Server 2008 R2 Express SP1? Is there an upgrade to MS Access 2007 which will allow me to use SQL Server 2008 R2 Express?

Can not connect to user instance of SQL Server 2008 Express with Advance Services in Visual Studio 2

  
I used SQL Server 2008 Express with Advanced Services (not SQL Server 2008 Express) in Visual Studio 2010 because it is the fast and easy way to developed and managed data-driven applications with powerful built-in reporting and full-text search functionality. I received Sql Server 2008 Service Pack 1 with Windows Update. It's ok if I connect to instance of SQL Server 2008 Express with Advance Services (with SP1) through SQL Server Management, but if I try to attach a database in Server Explorer (Visual Studio 2010), I get the following error: "Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user instance. The connection will be closed." I'm stuck at this point. Is there a fix or a workaround? I've already tried deleting the 'C:\Users\Administrtor\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS' directory as mentioned in other posts, with no luck. The error.log at 'C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Data\SQLEXPRESS\error.log' has the following relevant entries: 2010-09-01 14:44:10.47 Server      Error: 17156, Severity: 16, State: 1. 2010-09-01 14:44:10.47 Server      initeventlog: Could not initiate the EventLog Service for the key '3677F6D3-17C7-4F', last error code is 2. 2010-09-01 14:44:10.47 Server &

SQL Server Express 2008 instance fails to start

  

I've installed SQL Server Express with a named instance 'SQLSERVER2'. I was able to connect to it and reference it in the management studio. There was a problem though with Visual Studio 9 when running an ASP.NET web application that required connecting to the same instance. So, I went into the configuration manager to change the security level of the instance from network to local service. The change went through but could not restart the instance. That is what has created my next round of problems. I can't go in and change it back to network because the instance is permanently stopped. I cannot start it with the services manager. How can I fix this?

Here is the connection log:

Issue when using Distrib.exe to synchronize database with SQL Server 2008 Express

  

Hi

I am using SQL Server 2008 Express. I created a new DB and then used Distrib.exe to create and populate the tables. It worked fine. However then I deleted one of the tables and ran the command again from command prompt. It did not pick up the table that I had dropped.  I did not get any error messages but just a message saying, No replicated transactions are available. I checked the snapshot. The table I dropped is in the Snapshot. I am using a transactional Publication and Pull Subscription.  Any ideas why the the deleted table is being missed by Distrib??

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks


Problem remotely connecting to sql server 2008 express

  

Hi,

I am trying to connect to sql server 2008 express remotely from visual studio 2010. On the server, I've enabled the sql browser service, enabled the TCP/IP and named pipes protocols. Also for firewall I added exceptions for the sqlserver and sqlbrowser instances. I tried connecting to the server through telnet by specifying the ip and port and it worked. But when I try connecting from visual studio through sql client I get the following error:

Timeout expired, the timeout period ellapsed prior to the completion of the operation or the server is not responding. Any ideas what might be the problem?

Thank you,

Sam

File corrupt issue with SQL Server Express 2008 Download

  
I have tried to download SQL Server Express 2008 with advanced services a several times from different locations across the MS web site.  I keep getting a File Corrupt error when extracting "owc11sp1.msp."  I have tried several different computers and following the steps directly.  I can not perform a web install on the machine that will host the SQL server, so that option is out.  Does anyone know where I can get a copy of this that actually works?

I tried downloading it from here:

Word Automation Issue in Windows Server 2008 Hosting

  

Hi,

The problem I am posting here is that I was facing nearly 2 weeks around. Any body comes with this stuff please help.

Word Automation in sample ASP.NET(C#) application.

I am using Microsoft.Office.Inetrop.Word Assembly for automation. Here I am reading a XXX.dot template file and fill the contents with dynamic data.

When i am executing my code in localhost:someportnumber the automation is working fine and I could get expected result and when I am hosting in my inetmgr(Windows XP is my OS) it is also working fine.

But the problem is that when I am hosting in my production server(Windows Server 2008 Standard Edition) I am not able to perform automation and results in the following error.

Data: System.Collections.ListDictionaryInternal
Message: Word has encountered a problem.
Source: Microsoft Word

The code gets failed in the following line:

ApplicationClass wordApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Word.ApplicationClass();

Document wordDoc = wordApp.Documents.Add(ref oTemplate, ref oFalse, ref oMissing, ref oMissing); // Error in this line

I cannot able to proceed further. Can anybody please help me in solving this issue?

Thank you.

Can't Create ODBC to Local SQL Server Express 2008

  
Hello. I have SQL Server Express 2008 SP1 LOCALLY on my Windows XP Professional SP3 box. I have databases already created in Access 2007 that I imported into SQL. Now I want to keep the front end Access forms for data entry but have them connect to the databases in SQL. What I can't seem to do is connect from Access to the SQL db's because I can't create the ODBC connection. When I try to connect, I get the following two 'Connection failed' errors: 1. SQLState: '08001' SQL Server Error: 10061 [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0]TCP Provider: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. 2. SQLState: 'HYT00' SQL Server Error: 0 [Microsoft][SQL Server Native Client 10.0]Login timeout expired Additionally, this information may help. 1. Windows firewall is turned off. 2. In SQL Server Configuration Manager > SQL Server Network Configuration > Protocols for SQLEXPRESS, Shared Memory, Named Pipes and TCP/IP are all 'Enabled'. The order is Shared Memory (1), Named Pipes (2) and TCP/IP (3). 3. In SQL Server Configuration Manager > SQL Native Client 10.0 Configuration > Client Protocols, the above three are also 'Enabled'. The order is Shared Memory (1), Named Pipes (2) and TCP/IP (3). Double-clicking TCP/IP tells me that the default port is 1433. 4. Running "netstat -ano", I see no entries for [myIPaddress]:1433.

Having problems installing/setting up SQL Server 2008 Express/R2 for ASP.NET user management on deve

  
I'm a bit new to installing and configuring, well, just about anything regarding databases, so please bear with me. I'm currently building a couple of ASP.NET MVC 2 sites.  I'm following along with the MVCMusicStore tutorial, and am trying to set up user management using ASP.NET's configuration tool.  The problem is that ASP.NET can't 'see' the database. I have SQL Server 2008 installed on my laptop.  It's the version which is available on the Web Platform Installer (I believe it's Express).  When I try running the aspnet_sqlreg.exe program to set up my user management database, it can't tell that I'm running any version of SQL Server at all.  I get an exception about 'named pipes', and some other things I don't understand at the moment. Obviously, this is all a bit over my head.  Is there an idiot proof guide or tutorial available that describes, step-by-step, how to: 1. Install SQL Server 2008 on a development PC 2. How to configure it to be used by Visual Studio 2010 Professional 3. How to properly upload/modify the db on the production server with what's on the development PC Essentially, all the things that the ASP.NET tutorials gloss over.  Any suggestions, links to documentation, or other nudges in the right direction would be immensely appreciated.
