I want to install SQL server 6.0 on a standalone NT server (there is no network).  The purpose is just to learn it.  However, after I install it, I am not able to register the server using the enterprise manager (on the same machine of course).  Other utility is not able to connect to the server either.

Can anyone show me how to config it so that I can use it from the clients of the same machine?  I can reinstall it and even the NT server if needed.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Your NT Server works as a server AND a workstation. AllSQLServer Client utilities (iSQL, Enterprise Manager,MSQuery, etc) require a network protocol (Named Pipes, IPX,TCP/IP, etc). Network protocols require networkcards andnetwork cards require cables (dcba: "really?")Since you're running stand-alone, we're missing all the required components (dcba: "exactly"). NOT.1). Run SQLServer setup and change the network support. Check    Named Pipes, MultiProtocol and IPX checkboxes.    SQLServer configuration is now ready.2.  Go to your control panel and choose 'network'.    Add a network adapter. (dcba: "I don't have    any, you moron!!!").    Choose brand 'Microsoft', type 'MS Loopback    adapter. This is a software driver that emulates a    network card.3.  Add a protocol. The easiest protocols to choose are    NetBEUI or IPX since they do not require terrible    configuring. NTServer will bind the protocol(s) to    the MS Loopback MakeBelieve adapter. Now restart your server and enjoy your own private littlenetwork. You can now use enterprise manager to talk toSQLServer. If you're using I/SQL you have to configure thecorrect network support and if you're using MSQuery youneed to set up an ODBC datasource first.Now don't you dare rejecting my answer!Just kidding. :)Good luck.

It seems to be working once I installed the loopback adapter.  (when setting up NT, it ask me whether to install it and I select yes, however it is not installed somehow)

Thanks a lot.
