I have a SQL Server 2005 box that was moved from a domain environment to a non-domain environment and was never dropped from its original domain before moving over.ÃÂ Subsequently a new domain was created at the data center this SQL Server box now resides in.ÃÂ The machine was dropped from its old domain and joined to the new one.
All the while the service accounts were set to the local admin account.ÃÂ When I tried to start the Configuration Manager I got the message "Connection to target machine could not be made in a timely fashion.".ÃÂ I read some blog entries and tried changing all the service accounts to Local System and the error message still came up.
All of the SQL Server services run fine.ÃÂ It is just this management console that I cannot open.ÃÂ I wasn't with this employer when this box was moved to the data center so I do not know if it worked prior and there isn't anyone here that could give me its history.
Any help would be appreciated.
