I am attempting to attach to my new Windows 2008 R2 SQL Server 2005 standard clustered remotely. The firewall is temp off, remote connections in the surface area configuration is set to pipes and tcp/ip. I have attempted to check the
browser configuration but I can't find this.
I can attach to the sql server on my cluster but am unable to on a remote machine error is:
Cannot connect to clustered name\instance name
A network-related or instance-specific error occured while establishing a connection to sql server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and the SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections.
