I  had an os drive failer and had to reinstall my Sql server 2000 database.  I have all the data recovered  but  I cannot seem to connect to the database with anything other than enterprise manager.     I can connect with ET from various machines in my network but if I try a connection string or try to use sql query analyzer to connect it says database does not exist or you do not have permision

I set up a user with access permision to everything.  
I have Service pack 3 installed.

Does any one have any idea why this is not connecting?

ET?  You mean EM?

Sounds like maybe your authentication method got switched (some of the EMs work because they have a different method).  Did you verify your SQL Server was installed with the same authentication method and using the same startup accounts as before?

Use the Client Network Utility to specify an alias for the server and see if you can connect via SQL QA to this alias.
