Hi all,

I really need help with the SQL Enterprise Manager. I have always been able to connect to all of the Servers. But recently I am not able to connect to a single one of them. Whenever I try to click on a Server I get the message:

“A Connection could not be established to Server X".
Reason: General OLE-Error 16386.
Please Verify SQL Server is running and check your SQL Server registration properties( by right clicking on the server X node) and try again.

I can connect through query analyzer.

Can anyone please help me???

Thanks a lot!

You can try to reinstall the Client Tools from the MSSQL CD, since it looks like your SQL-DMO object got unregistered.
Enterprise Manager uses SQL-DMO OLE objects to communicate to the Server, whereas Query Analyzer doesn't need them and can work without them.
