SQL Server Configuration Manager - Protocol Name is blank

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
When I run SQL Server Configuration Manager (2008) and click on SQL Server Network Configuration and then Protocols for SQL, the right side of the screen shows the protocol icons and their status, but the names (TCP/IP, Shared Memory, Named Pipes, etc) are not there. Can someone tell me how to get the names to display again? They used to show up. A thought is that I installed XP SP3 and that made them go away, but I can't prove that.

SQL Server Configuration Manager: Connection to target machine could not be made in a timely fashion

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.  Subsequently a new domain was created at the data center this SQL Server box now resides in.  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.  When I tried to start the Configuration Manager I got the message "Connection to target machine could not be made in a timely fashion.".  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.  It is just this management console that I cannot open.  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.

I am using Windows Server 2003. I have installed SQL Server 2005 and SQL 2008 R2 version in the machine. The sql server 2008 R2 version has the instance name as SQL2008R2

I am trying to configure "Reporting services Configuration Manager" for the SQL 2008 r2. I gave the machine name and hit the Find button, I am not able to get the Report server instance name.

But when I gave the server name, i am able to browse to the folders page in the Internet explorer. so the server is available . I gave like this in the IE, and I am able to see the page:

http://Server IP/Reports_SQL2008R2/Pages/Folder.aspx

In the eventvwr, I found the following errror "The Drive:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSRS10_50.SQL2008R2\Reporting Services\ReportServer\RSReportServer.config file failed to load. This error may occur if the XML is not valid. "

Test Run: Configuration Testing With Virtual Server, Part 2


Because Virtual Server is built upon a set of COM modules, you can automate the creation and testing of virtual machines. Here we use Windows PowerShell to run the tests.

Cannot enable TCP/IP through the Configuration Manager

Hi, I am using SQL Server 2008 sp1 Developer Edition.  The database engine service is running and the SQL browser service is running. It is set to allow remote connections. When I open SQL Server Configuration Manager and expand the SQL Server Network Configuration mode and select Protocols for <server name>, it shows Shared Memory as Enabled and all others as Disabled. If I right click on TCP/IP and select Enable, I get a warning stating that the changes will be saved but will not take effect until after I restart the service. When I click OK on the warning popup to close it, it still shows TCP/IP as Disabled. After I restart the service I return to the Protocols screen and check the value of TCP/IP. It is still Disabled. I am still unable to connect to it remotely. Configuration Manager is not allowing me to enable TCP/IP. I need to do this. I looked for an alternate way to enable TCP/IP but have not been able to find one that works.  Any thoughts?

Unable to connect to SQL Server 2005 remotly, all client protocols are blank

I have an installation of SQL 2005 and had issues connecting remotly. Looking at the client protocolols, they are all blank. I can see that TCPIP, Named Pipes, VIA, etc. are 'enabled', but where the words 'TCPIP', 'Names Pipes', etc. should be, it's just blank. I tried to install SQL 2008R hoping the Client Protocols would be corrected during the installaion, but they were not. I'm assuming the issue with the Client Protocols not showing up is a symptom of the problem. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

SQL server memory / speed configuration

Let me preface this by saying I'm aware of SQL server memory architecture, i.e it takes as much as it can get it's hand's on ...I've read through all the post's on here and they have been very helpful ... However if someone could take a look at these these configuration values ... I'm trying to get a new server dialed in, I'm still having some user end speed issues, and application hangup's that seem sql related ... I'm by no means a dba so if someone who's knowledgeable could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it ... I feel like something is not configured properly ...

Single Server URL Name Configuration

I have created a 2 Server Farm (WFE/App and SQL) and created a Active Directory Domain (DEV.local) and DNS (DEV.Local) and set up my first site collection via the wizard after install and it works great as hhtp://servername and then I wanted to create a new site http://portal.dev.local and I am having no luck as I must be doing things out of order. I created a Managed Account, Web Application, Site Collection and I can not access it. I created an A Record and then a N Record in DNS and tried to set up Alternate Access Mapings and still no luck.  Is there some documentation on setting this up with a single IP/Machine? Thanks, ReevesDenver, CO

How to get configuration information in side server-side code

I'm relatively new to writing code for sharepoint 2010, and one thing I'm curious about is how/where can I store configuration information, so that if I code on 1 platform and push to another, how do I keep things like the weburl, sites, lists, etc in a config file?  Is there a standard config file to use, or would it always be the web.config for the entire system? Specifically, if i start up code, how can I find a) what is the current weburl I'm on, b) what site/sitecollection, and c) a list of all lists? thanks  Rocky Sanders

Permission Errors for Users on Home Page only of SQL Server Reporting Services Report Manager

I have spent days now investigating this problem, so any help very much appreciated! I have a remote web server 2003 running SQL Server R2 Express Edition with Reporting Services installed. I use Report Builder 3.0 locally to build report. If I login via Internet to Report Manager Web Page as an administrator I can perform all the expected and required actions, creating new folders and assigning permissions for users etc. I have added a new user "ReportUser" as a Browser of a child folder. If ReportUser longs on to home page, he receives the all too familiar error: User 'XXXXXXXX\reportuser' does not have required permissions. Verify that sufficient permissions have been granted and Windows User Account Control (UAC) restrictions have been addressed. However, if the user starts at the child folder of home page, and then logs in, he sees the expected page, and can run the report!  This is not very satisfactory. How can I allow user to see home page, without an error message, but not be allowed to click on any folders to which he is not entitled? I am now aware that SQL Server R2 Express Edition has many limitations compared with full Editions (fixed roles, cannot manage Report Service from Management Studio etc) , and many of the "solutions" offered on the web just do not apply.   John Walton
