This error message appears because there is a network error connecting to SQL Server - it means that you are trying to connect to SQL Server using TCP/IP sockets and the server is not configured to use TCP/IP, or that there is no network connection to the SQL Server. So configure the server to use TCP/IP and check the network connection.
