Hi all,
I have installed SQL SERVER 2005 CTP,Version 9.00.1314 but the problem is…as soon as i m trying to connect..i gave the local server name as SHUCHI during the installation and now i m trying to connect to it… then it gives me error as :
cannot connect to SHUCHI
additional information: An error has occured while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005,this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections.(provider:Named Pipes Provider,error:40-Could not open connection to SQL Server)(Microsoft SQL Server,Error:2) and i m not able to understand how to solve this problem…can someone PLEASEEEEEEEE help meeeee… ANY HELP WILL B GREATLY APPRECIATED….

Try enabling TCP/IP. Program Files ->
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 ->
Configuration Tools ->
SQL Server Configuration Manager ->
SQL Server 2005 Network Configuration ->
Protocols for 2005 ->
TCP/IP – properties, set to Enabled. Keith Payne
